In the exceptional context of the Révélation’s “Hors-Les-Murs” VIP extramural journey, during the fourth edition of this International Fine Craft & Creation Biennial, Maison Parisienne presents a very focused and unique exhibition « Effets Matières », also named « Simone Pheulpin and guests ».
The exhibition « Effets Matières – Simone Pheulpin and guests » highlights the exceptional creations of this celebrated artist, carefully displayed within the Palace’s ornate lobby, followed by one of the Hotel’s Signature Suites. Viewers might believe that they are facing fragments of stone, shell, porcelain or even ivory.

For this exhibition, Simone Pheulpin has also invited a dozen other artists to display their works in conversation with her own. Visitors will be able to observe some of the rarest and most precious artisanal techniques and appreciate the diverse and rich styles of each artist; from the elusive renditions of glass blowing to the painstaking intricacy of porcelain, from soft fabric to the elevation of geological architectures.
