Best known for her large-scale sculptures, the contemporary French artist has interpreted Ruinartâ€™s history through the centerpiece Promenades en ChampagneÂ â€” an installation that encourages visitors to traverse the Maisonâ€™s terroir through the ages. Made of recycled cardboard â€“ Jospinâ€™s go-to medium â€“ the piece presents a wild landscape that also captures the history and metamorphoses of the champagne region.
In an official press release, the artist explains that â€œMy proposal takes the form of a stroll through a sculptural setting that evokes this terroir and the gestures that keep it alive. I invite the public to inhabit this world, made up of mysterious chalk quarries and luminous vineyards, and to cross the different layers of time.â€
In addition, the artist has crafted special-edition cases around a Jeroboam of Blanc de Blancs, with only 25 signed and numbered pieces available at Art Basel Hong Kong. The cases open into a miniature scene of a crayÃ©re as a metaphor for the champagneâ€™s fermentation process.
