The Pernod Ricard Foundation and the Beaux-Arts de Paris renew their collaboration for 2022-2023. Charlotte Simonnet, a 3rd year student at the Atelier Tatiana Trouvé, presents her installation Coutures as part of the "L'Avancée" programme.
Located in the heart of the café-library of the new Pernod Ricard Foundation, L'Avancée is a hanging space dedicated to emerging artists, a way of extending the exhibition space into the living space.
"My work Coutures is made of concrete iron imitating the movement of a rope. It sews the wall from which it emerges, forming loops of different sizes before falling to the ground. This concrete iron is treated to have a black colour with some violet reflections.
This installation is a gesture evoking the construction of a place, of an architecture. By coming out of the picture rail, the concrete iron makes an invisible form visible. The gesture of sewing then evokes a way of linking the underside with the top. A game of illusion is created by the contrast between the rigidity of the metal and the rounded, supple shapes of a rope."
