Published on 03/01/2019

The 4th edition of the International Fine Crafts and Creation Biennial Art Show “Revelations” will run from May 23 to 26, 2019 at the Grand Palais, in Paris. Two of our Biot’s Glass Artists have been selected to exhibit some of their work.

Supported by the Ateliers d’Art de France since 2013, the biennial art show is an appointment not to be missed for the professionals of Fine Crafts and Creation. It gathers a prestigious public, which is constantly increasing (40 268 visitors in 2017) of art lovers and collectors, gallerists, architects, interior decorators, buying offices and also art directors of luxury houses.

Sixteen countries are represented by 400 creators, artists, manufactures, galleries, prestigious houses, foundations and institutions which reveal all the wealth and liveliness of contemporary art crafts practices worldwide. These creators are scrupulously selected by an international artistic committee, composed of well-known contemporary art specialists. This committee acknowledged Antoine Pierini for his undeniable creativity and craftsmanship.

For the third time, Antoine Pierini will have the privilege to exhibit some creations from his emblematic SERIE: one Bamboo’s installations in monochrome colours. Antoine Pierini’s artistic approach aim to be faithful to these values: purity of the glass, simplicity and elegance of line. The verticality of the « Bamboos » enables the creation of monumental indoor sculptures. However, it is in the outdoors that the perfect harmony of the work of Art returning to Nature can be appreciated.

And above all, the last work presented is part of the SERIE « Vestiges Contemporains », Set of six transparent and opaque white amphorae on pedestal base in brushed marine stainless steel.

The amphora is a Mediterranean object par excellence. The simple word « amphora » evokes and awakens in us plural and powerful resonances: the words « travel, exchange, links and sharing « come quickly to mind.

This is the beginning of a very ambitious future project because Antoine Pierini has the project to create 23 amphorae, purified, white, transparent, titled « The Immaculate » which represent the 23 countries around the Mediterranean (Spain, France, Monaco, Italy, Malta, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Gibraltar (UK).

The 4th edition of the International Fine Crafts and Creation Biennial Art will run from 23rd to 26th may 2019 at Grand Palais in Paris. It will promote the values conducive to the cultural influence of the creative craftsmanship.

Anaïs H. Robinson and Antoine Pierini will be at the exhibition stands of the city of Biot.
