Exhibition "Inversant": glass and design at the Cité du Vin in Bordeaux
Nearly a hundred glass objects, real or diverted, will be discovered from March 15 to June 30.
These creations signed by designers and visual artists, including the French Fabrice Hyber or Philippe Starck, but also foreign designers, have been produced over the last 20 years.
“There are very few series, many are experimental,” said Ms. Chesneau-Dupin presenting this major annual exhibition of the institution. A white letter on a pair of bags was created by the designer Matali Crasset who invented it for the occasion “I came to sleep” (I have been suspended in Italian), a “object to a boire” nomadic form of boules where he suspended the strains of vigne et d’on where I could degenerate “in phase with nature et comme à la fontaine”, selon le musée.
One section will retrace the rituals associated with the wine, another the ceremonial tables. The exhibition, designed by curator Bettina Tschumi, is surrounded by dozens of events, conferences, meetings.
