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.

“Beaked glasses”, Cognac glasses by the artist Jean-Michel Othoniel, a creation of the designer Matali Crasset, are some of the objects that will soon be exhibited at the Bordeaux Wine City in “Reversing” , which explores glass and art.Nearly a hundred glass objects, real or diverted, will be to discover from March 15 to June 30 during an exhibition “resolutely contemporary around the material of predilection of wine,” said Tuesday in front of the press Laurence Chesneau-Dupin, director of culture of this wine museum.

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.
