As part of this year's "Ruinart Maison 1729", the French artist Eva Jospin is presenting her works as a so-called carte blanche. Drawings, embroidery and sculptures made of sustainable cardboard visualize the terroir of Champagne. First exhibited in Berlin, the artworks can also be seen all over the world, including at the Art Basel and Frieze New York art fairs.

What will be on display at Ruinart Maison 1729?

The works of art are inspired by the culture and region that make up Ruinarts champagne. Eva Jospin creates an immersive experience and leads visitors through a promenade through the landscapes and history of the Champagne region - corresponding to the title of her exhibition: "Promenade(s)". The sustainable works of art made of cardboard process the nested vines of the vines and the forest adjacent to the winery in a wide variety of motifs. In this way, Eva Jospin contrasts the natural landscapes with the architectural features.

Above all, the cellars and underground labyrinths and caves in which the champagne house stores its bottles are expressed. For the occasion, the artist has also launched a collector's box for the champagne house's large Jéroboam. This box is also made of cardboard and is held together by leather straps. With this, the artist wants to capture and recreate the scenery of the chalk mines of the city of Reims by placing the bottle in a miniature landscape inside the box.

What makes this exhibition so special?

The champagne house has already entered into cooperations with artists several times. The background is the countdown to the 300th anniversary in 2029. In recent years, the connection between science and art has also played a major role at Ruinart. In 2019, for example, an immersive audiovisual installation was created, which was primarily based on climate data and local environmental data. Two years later, an inflatable sculpture powered by the heat of the sun was the star attraction of an event. These projects want to show the effects of climate change by processing and presenting the influences of the environment in artistic form.
