Over the 10 days of his artistic residency in Reims, the Chinese artist Liu Bolin produced 8 works that reveal the invisible taks humans undertake to produce the Maison's cuvées.
For the Maison, he decided to magnify gestures of the workers and the know-how behind the creation of its Champagne.
With his subtle and inimitable technique, he managed to unite the history and know-how of the Maison by disappearing behind those who create its magic.
Liu Bolin FOR Ruinart
THE PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST
It's hard to define an artist like Liu Bolin given his experience and the variation of his work. A leading Chinese artist who is as much a sculptor, painter and photographer.
The Ruinart artist practices revelation through camouflage, which always reveal its presence.
Through his works, the artist transmits critical messages on political and social issues, but also on consumer society and ecology
LIMITED EDITION OF JEROBOAM
The Chinese artist Liu Bolin used the jackets he wears for his performances to elegantly decorate ten wooden boxes, each one with its own number.
Inside the box is a jeroboam of Ruinart Blanc de Blancs. These tailor-made jackets are like exceptional haute couture garments, ambassadors of the Maison Ruinart and its culture of excellence.
Trustful that art can enlighten and connect us across time and places, Ruinart gives Carte Blanche to leading contemporary artists to pay tribute to the Maison’s legacy.
Chosen for their commitments to sustainability, the artists are invited to Reims for an immersive journey to discover the Maison, its vineyards and its Crayères. They then share their vision of the work in the vineyards and the elaboration of the wines. Their artworks echo Ruinart’s values, raising awareness about climate change.
The unique and long-lasting relationship between Ruinart and the Arts goes back in 1896, when André Ruinart commissioned Czech artist Alphonse Mucha to create a poster that would embody the Maison.
