In 2020, British contemporary artist David Shrigley was chosen to deliver his unique take of Ruinart through the champagne house’s Carte Blanche program.
For the first time in the United States, a selection of Shrigley’s pieces from “Unconventional Bubbles” will be on display at the Ruinart Lounge at the Collectors Lounge of Art Basel Miami Beach.
At the Collectors Lounge, as well as throughout the fair, visitors can enjoy Ruinart Blanc de Blancs as they peruse the art works.
Ruinart invites the public to explore two digital experiences that fuse the virtual and real of the art world, making art accessible for all.
The Ruinart Acute Art app allows users to discover David Shrigley’s augmented reality creation in Miami.
Inspired by one of the British artist’s drawings for Ruinart, the digital Giant Worm twists through the Magic City.
For art lovers who aren’t able to get a taste of Art Basel Miami Beach in person, Ruinart’s “The Unconventional Gallery” allows users to virtually walk-through David Shrigley’s artworks.
During his art residency, while visiting Reims, David Shrigley explored the wine cellars and studied the vineyard, taking note of everything he observed.
His artistic interpretation titled, “Unconventional Bubbles” shines a new light upon the vineyards, the heritage, the savoir-faire, and the innate ties with nature of the Maison.
David Shrigley’s drawings, installations, and sculptures seek to take us on an instructional but humorous journey, provoking surprising conversations about nature and the wine-making process.
