We are Canopy Collections. We select and sell unique artworks by international living artists.
Canopy Collections was founded in London in September 2020 by curator Louise Chignac and Cécile Ganansia. Our mission is to offer a new approach to discovering and buying contemporary art, through both physical exhibitions and online collections. We believe that art should be an integral part of our everyday life and made more accessible to a wider audience. Operating at the crossroad of art, design and lifestyle, we help our clients build their personal collection and select for them unique artworks of outstanding quality by some of today's most inspiring artists.
Louise Chignac has a ten-year experience as a contemporary art curator, critic and consultant. She started her career in 2010 as curatorial assistant to Guillaume Désanges (now President of the Palais the Tokyo, Paris). After studying art history at La Sorbonne University in Paris, she moved to London to complete her MA in Curating at Goldsmiths College. From 2014 to 2018, she managed Cranford Collection, one of the most significant private collections of contemporary art in Europe. She has also collaborated with international galleries, including MOT International, London and Brussels, The Gallery of Everything, London, and Ordovas, London and New York. In 2015, she contributed to the inaugural edition of the Art Night festival in London and co-edited its first publication, Expanding the City’s Boundaries. In 2016, she collaborated with Christie’s London on a major private collection sale entitled Absobloodylutely! and its original catalogue. As an independent curator, Louise has exhibited the work of Francis Alÿs, Susan Hiller, Pierre Huygue, Derek Jarman, Laure Prouvost, Dan Rees and Ulay.
Cécile Ganansia started her career in Asset Management in Paris. In 2013, she set up Brain Circle UK, a major foundation for brain research based in London. She worked in partnership with the Sainsbury’s Foundation on developing a programme of lectures and events that explored the themes of art and science and included international artists such as Marina Abramovic, Anthony Gormley, Michal Rovner and Ron Arad. In 2019, Cécile was involved with the Christie’s Contemporary Art Degree in London.
