Since 2008, Maison Ruinart has invited artists to present their interpretations of the champagne house and its heritage as part of the Carte Blanche commission. While in the past artists like Eva Jospin, Jeppe Hein, or David Shrigley have offered their perspectives, 2024 marks a paradigm shift, as Ruinart is embracing a new approach. Under the theme of “Conversations With Nature,” this year, six artists from five continents have traveled to Reims and created works of art based on their personal impressions of the landscape they encountered.

A new exhibition at the Berlinische Galerie sheds light on the oeuvre of Hans Uhlmann, one of Germany’s foremost, yet forgotten, sculptors of modernity, whose large-scale public works engage in dialogue with Berlin’s modern architectural icons. Across seven chapters, the exhibition retraces the forgotten luminary’s life and work, from his formative ‘wire sculpture’ typology to the indelible imprint his public sculptures have left on western Berlin’s urban fabric.

Theodore Psychoyos: Working With Matter
IGNANT » Art
by Marie-Louise Schmidlin
8M ago
The practice of Athens-based artist Theodore Psychoyos revolves in its essence around matter. His functional objects put raw shapes and smooth surfaces in dialogue and explore the fine line between gravity and balance. Through the hefty character of his creations, which often take on the shape of stools, benches, and tables, he challenges our ability to adapt to the spaces that surround us. Ignant visited the sculptor in his atelier, just a few kilometres away from the centre of the Greek capital.

When Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset first entered the art world in the early 1990s, they were met with numerous conventions and behavioral codes that they perceived as “a little bit disappointing.” A realization that marked the beginning of the duo’s subversive journey through the art world, transforming museums and galleries around the globe into unexpected and slightly unsettling environments. During the early days of summer, the two artists welcomed Ignant into their studio and talked about how they converted spaces to challenge the status quo.

The work of German sculptor Michael Sailstorfer revolves around the themes of transformation and temporality, and he frequently emphasizes a dialogue between nature and the human-made world. While his ideas often manifest in the form of objects and installations, the artist continually pushes the boundaries of sculpture, seeking to explore its limitations. Ignant had the opportunity to visit Sailstorfer in his studio in Berlin-Weißensee in early June and take a closer look at some of his works.

Meditative and suggestive, Jess Allen’s paintings are the fruit of observation—a study of the passing of time and the will to feel and recount.
