The artisan Janique Bourget created a mobile sculpture from the second skin cases that wrap Maison Ruinart’s bottles.
The soft, white and light paper case, made from natural wood fibers, offers a wide exploratory field to the artist, who gives it a second life and reveals its possibilities.
Cutting the second skin case into petals, playing with the curves, then accentuating the skin-life effect with traces of gold leaf, Janique transforms the material, sublimates it, and recycles it.
The curved fragments of paper were leafed through and the case, like a shedding molt, expresses all the lightness of a living material. This aerial work captures the movement, vibration and effervescence of Ruinart champagnes.
Ruinart's commitment to the preservation of nature and know-how is historically rooted. By commissioning artists to upcycle its existing second skin cases and giving them a lifetime function, the Maison strengthens its sustainability commitments.
