Every year, Maison Ruinart welcomes an international contemporary artist in Reims to share his or her vision of the famous Maison.
On Friday March 6th, in a hidden room of Opéra Bastille in Paris, Ruinart revealed its new 2020 artistic collaboration.
Following Liu Bolin (2018) and Vik Muniz (2019), in 2020 British artist David Shrigley applies his unique take on Maison Ruinart across an ensemble of 42 artworks.
Reflecting this bold yet committed stance, his artistic reinterpretation is titled “Unconventional Bubbles”. David Shrigley’s work will be exhibited at 37 international contemporary art fairs.
Through his drawings, neons and sculptures, David Shrigley offers up a journey that is at once welcoming and singular. In tandem, he makes us mindful of day-to-day environmental challenges, which Maison Ruinart is attentive to. Humour is, without a doubt, one of the best means for spreading awareness.
Fixing his gaze upon the longstanding Maison, David Shrigley allows us to rediscover Ruinart with his quirky and uncompromising humour.
His art shines a new light upon the vineyards, the heritage and the savoir-faire of the Maison. His works inquisitively examine the rituals and customs of those who bring Ruinart champagnes to life.
With a sharp eye and great curiosity, he studied the well-kept secrets behind the creation of champagne.
