Maison Ruinart attends the biggest international art fairs, and each year gives « carte blanche » to a renowned artist. It is through the yearly artist partnerships that the Maison continues to share its heritage, history and know-how.
During the 2018 harvest, Vik Muniz spent many hours in Sillery, a long-standing vineyard belonging to Maison Ruinart, and one of the northernmost in Europe, on the Montagne de Reims. A multi-talented artist, Vik Muniz created a series of works inspired by the idea of flow, which is based on vine stock represented with pieces of blackened wood and charcoal. He also brought new life to leaves of chardonnay vines - the emblematic grape in the Ruinart taste - mixed with other natural elements found in the Sillery vineyard.
Enraptured by the long process required to produce Ruinart champagne, the Brazilian artist captured the relationship between humans and nature, personified by Frédéric Panaïotis, whose hands are the subject of Vik’s art.
