abstraction(s),
an exhibition
about simple
geometric shapes
2020

ARCADE Design à la campagne® (literally design in the countryside) is an organization composed of design and craft enthusiasts. It’s based in a XVIIth century castle, in the middle of the Burgundy countryside. This cultural center’s goal is to create high quality events around design and craft, for a public that is distanced from urban centers. In 2020, they invited me to curate, alongside with Édith Bricogne, their main exhibition: Abstraction(s). It questioned the emergence of simple geometric shapes throughout textiles, objects and works of art.
