Flow Hands - Vik Muniz / Xippas Gallery for Ruinart
Founded in 1729, Maison Ruinart is the ﬁrst established champagne house. Each year, artists receive carte blanche to express their vision of the Maison, to share its heritage, savoir-faire and the excellence of its cuvées. In 2019, the Brazilian artist Vik Muniz was chosen to pay tribute to the terroir and the savoir-faire that the Maison is rooted in. During his art residency, he created a series of works inspired by winegrowers and vineyards facing challenging natural conditions. Through the use of organic elements such as pieces of blackened wood, charcoal or chardonnay leaves, his photographs highlight our perception of scale and play with our senses.
