Obsession focus on this "reasoning madness" with which artists and collectors live daily: Art addiction.
In many respects, the emotional charge of this opus is intense: the amount of works presented, sweeping the times, from the Bronze Age until today. They invited four collectors, François Rachline and François de Coninck (two literary guests) and the French contemporary artist Gérard Garouste and his wife Elizabeth. The artist Gérard Garouste imagined and selected, besides his own works, his ideal collection.
The collectors respected the rules of the game that Maison Particulière set out: to choose the exhibited artworks themselves. Indeed, how does one interfere with the obsessions of the others? This is where the particular, the individual, the emotional intervene. It’s from diversity that richness originates.
