About the artists
Perrin & Perrin - Galerie Negropontes
Perrin & Perrin
Martine and Jacki Perrin sculpt together as one, forming a duo enriched by their individualities. For over a decade they have explored the potential of ceramics in parallel with their practice of Far Eastern calligraphy. Glass became their preferred medium and they developed the unique method of “Build-in-Glass” which allowed them to constantly explore new boundaries and to continuously develop and renew their work. They create dense and compact blocks in which they sculpt both monumental and more intimate pieces, in unique shapes and colours. One of the distinguishing features of their work is the constant play on transparency, porosity and above all, light. They find their inspiration in scriptural and musical constructions, as well as in the revelation of geological processes or phenomena. Their work, born out of the four elements, has an intrinsic coherence and a unique beauty.

Maison Pinton

For over 150 years, Pinton has been perpetuating the savoir-faire of the Royal Manufacture of Aubusson, which has made France famous for the manufacture of top-of-the-range rugs and tapestries. In the 20th century, textile art emancipated itself from painting, becoming a medium in its own right, exploring new techniques. Strongly attached to the quality of their work, the Pinton workshops pursue a tradition of close collaboration with contemporary artists, in perpetual exchange with the different trades that interact from the first sketch to the fall of the loom. Galerie Negropontes wished to confront these high standards with those of Perrin & Perrin. The couple was immediately drawn into this new project, examining, proposing and questioning themselves in order to work with a hitherto unknown material, turning it into a new mode of expression.
