The 'Collection of Collections' of Guy Selz.
The collection is of a series of collections that Francoise and Guy Selz put together over a half a century (1925-1976) it was donated by Philippe and Dorothee Selz who have themselves gone on adding to it.
This text is a quote was from the press release of the exhibition.
Now being presented in Barcelona, the inventive universe of this 'Collection of Collections'-scraps, crepe paper, reliquaries, crosses, votive offerings, birds, dolls, animals, masks, lead soldiers, popular prints, albums of stickers,toy boats, etc-reflect the spirit of the collector who seeks to capture the energy of the past in groupings of objects..............
Every passion borders on the chaotic,
but the collector's passion borders on
the chaos of memories.
