The L'ETINCELLE ART SPACE Shanghai is a non-profit gallery opened in 2018, by Jennifer and Sophia and features Chinese and European contemporary art and design. With a couple of exhibitions each year, we hope to inspire and ignite a growing audience of art aficionados.
Visit us.


In the spirit of an art and design exchange, we aim at introducing and promoting emerging and established artists, both Chinese and Western.

Explosive growth in the contemporary art market leaves artists and regulation with a huge burden. Our international audience thinks that a visit to our gallery is worth a detour because it offers a clear alternative to the over-commercialization of the Shanghai art scene.

We apply the same uninhibited mindset in our discoveries of new talent and in our search for cooperation with European galleries.


Who is who

Jennifer Zhang

Starting her journey, Jennifer studied law and this helped her to lay the groundwork for building balanced and fair relationships.

With a love for design and eye for detail, Jennifer started producing furniture for the Shanghai food and beverage customers. [Link-j-furniture]

Pregnant with her second daughter, new design ideas developped. Supported by a creative team, she developped [J4KID] and [Inidoo], two brands valued by both foreign and local parents in search for style and functional comfort in the living room. Also under her wings is [J4Furniture], a popular brand that features Scandinavian styled furniture and habitat decoration.

Brand owners asked her to invent, design and produce commercial window displays: [Visual Toast] is the new venture that combines storytelling and refined brand identity.

Sophia Slingerland, a German trained architect, lived in different countries throughout her career. From very early on, she was concerned about ecology and sustainability and pursued her career path in this direction in different countries. Germany, Austria, France, California, Czech Republic are on her list of places, where she was involved or got influenced by.
