Gemologist, artisan, dreamer, curious, insatiable…many words to portray Ado Chale, the craftsman in wrought iron. No round, no square, no rectangle, just a hand that digs and traces raw material and vigorous forms to show a window open on a dream journey to the heart of the earth.

To celebrate his first monograph (released on September 14th) Bozar is hosting a retrospective of his work from August 18 to September 24. These two events will retrace the odyssey of Ado Chale from 1966 to 2015.
