Limited edition Ruinart Rosé jeroboam by Jeppe Hein
LIMITED EDITION RUINART ROSE JEROBOAM BY JEPPE HEIN

As part of his artistic reinterpretation of Maison Ruinart, Jeppe Hein transformed the wooden box containing a Jeroboam bottle of Ruinart Rosé into a work of art, exploring the different dimensions of champagne.

LIMITED EDITION RUINART ROSE JEROBOAM BY JEPPE HEIN

Jeppe Hein’s special creation On the Rosé Jeroboam

Echoing his sensory installation RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW, Jeppe Hein customized the Ruinart Rosé Jeroboam coffret.

The Danish artist whitened it with chalk – taken directly from the walls of the Maison’s Crayères – giving the wood a ceruse-like appearance. The artist also replaced the usual Ruinart label by a rose-coloured mirror one, recalling the mirrors that display mantras in the art installation.

Once the bottle has been removed, the box serves as the base for a rose-coloured mirror sculpture evoking both the colour and sparkling bubbles of the champagne: a testimony to the fleeting moment of tasting.

With 25 signed and numbered copies, this boxed set will be presented at the art fairs of which Maison Ruinart is a partner.

JEPPE HEIN Carte Blanche artist of the year

Based in Berlin, the Danish artist is a witty heir to the conceptual art and Minimalism of the 1970s. His participatory dimension is at the heart of his work, just as his interest in the five senses and the four elements can be found in his installations. He made his name with art pieces whose apparent simplicity changes the viewer’s relationship to their surrounding and encourages dialogue. 


For Ruinart, Jeppe Hein imagined an artistic installation that translated his sensorial journey at Maison Ruinart in Champagne. Right Here, Right Now is a participatory installation that summons the four elements – earth/soil, water/rain, air/wind and fire/sun – essential to champagne making.
