Just a few steps away from the Grand Palais, where is being held the fourth edition of the International Fine Craft & Creation Biennial, developed by the Ateliers d’Art de France, collectors will be able to discover Hubert Barrère’s innovative creations in perfect harmony with the Artcurial environment.

For this exhibition, Hubert Barrère has created a highly complex body of work, pieces which associate sumptuous materials and exceptional craftsmanship, precious and surprising objects that highlight art, fashion, contemporary creation but above all, skillful gestures and the sensitive nature of craftsmanship. As artistic director of Maison Lesage, he uses embroidery to produce “material diversions” that heighten illusion. Hubert Barrère gives rise to each medium, patterns and shapes through the subtle gestures, the precise stitching and rhythms of his embroiderers. Feathers, glitters, pearls…, the designer gives them a second life; viewers are led to believe that they are rather facing snake scales, skin, coral or stone. Chimeric incarnations, these unhampered materials reveal gradations of their own in an attempt to reposition our relationships with them.

Inspired by ancient Greek statuary and particularly by the Tutelary Deity Athena, Hubert Barrère presents a very personal interpretation of this iconic goddess of artists and craftsmen. This accomplished embroiderer, corset-maker and sculptor glorifies the deitie’s symbolic attributes though mind-boggling embroideries created by the workshops of the Maison Lesage.
