Boucheron hosts Hiroshi Sugimoto’s works at 26 Place Vendome, Paris
Monday, October 14th, 2013 – Boucheron celebrated Hiroshi Sugimoto’s works of art during its opening exhibit in its historical flagship at 26 Place Vendome.
Amongst the invitees, were Francois-Henri Pinault and his wife Salma Hayek-Pinault, Pierre Bouissou and the artist himself.
Many celebrities, such as Carole Bouquet, Tomer Sisley, Vahina Giocante, Thomas Dutronc and Sabine Azéma honored the Maison by their presence.
To mark Boucheron’s presence of 120 years at the 26 Place Vendôme, the Maison exhibits exceptional works by the artist Hiroshi Sugimoto from October 15th to 25th, 2013
Taken from the Revolution series, these black and white seascapes of imposing size are the product of the artist’s deep meditation on water, air and light.
The remarkable and enigmatic images are presented to the public at the same time as the new High Jewelry collection “Hôtel de la Lumière”,a veritable ode to light: that of the stones themselves, the work of the hands that intensify them and, lastly, the brilliant beauty that shines through them.
This brings the Maison and Hiroshi Sugimoto together in this “Art of Light”, each in their own discipline, making this meeting of aesthetics remarkable.
This initiative forms part of the “Boucheron Artiste et Artisan du Rêve” project, which aims to create a dialogue with the contemporary art scene.
