June 21st – September 21st 2014
Over the past 20 years, renowned architects from all over the world conceived innovative buildings for the Domaine de Boisbuchet and new projects are now on the way. ‘Paradise is a Work in Progress’ reveals the fascinating diversity of architecture designed for Boisbuchet’s bucolic setting – realised, failed, currently under construction or still in a state of pure vision.
Boisbuchet presented this exhibition in 2013, which is now valuable for other venues.
A travelling exhibition organised by CIRECA. The exhibition is designed in cooperation with graduate students from Parsons The New School for Design, New York.
The exhibition Boro – The Fabric of Life comprises approximately 50 pieces composed of a collection of ingeniously repaired futon covers, kimonos, work garments, and other hand made, household textiles which were created by Japanese peasants between 1850 and 1950 using leftover, indigo dyed cotton. Most come from the private collection of New York based gallerist Stephen Szczepanek. Mr. Szczepanek also contributes to this exhibition as co-curator alongside Mathias Schwartz-Clauss, Boisbuchet’s artistic director.
In summer 2012, Boisbuchet presented two exhibitions on the theme of bamboo; one is centered on architecture and is comprised of an open air walking tour of the domain and the second features the work of an artist who utilizes the unique character of this material within the Boisbuchet chateau.
Sustainability in traditional architecture.
