Ruinart launches ‘Conversations with Nature’ series with artists Marcus Coates and Pascale Marthine Tayou

For 300 years, Ruinart has established a unique dialogue with nature, a dialogue shared with the artists the Maison collaborates with each year.

For the Ruinart Carte Blanche 2024, six artists from around the world have been invited to participate in ‘Conversations with Nature,’ engaging in dialogue with nature in the Champagne region and challenging their relationship with the living world.

Of these, Cameroonian artist Pascale Marthine Tayou has created a large-scale installation composed of a tree adorned with deer antlers and colourful fruits, which will be unveiled at the Ruinart Lounge at Art Dubai 2024. This work evokes the 5-meter-tall bronze sculpture he will install as a tribute to wildlife at the Maison’s historic site in Reims, France, later this year.

On the other side of the Lounge, numerous posters by British artist Marcus Coates present one month of the nature calendar he created for Ruinart. Inspired by his stay in the Champagne region, these posters reference Coates’ sculpture that will be placed in the Ruinart garden; it features a flag telling a different piece of news each day of the year.

Unveiled one by one at different art fairs, these works will be brought together in a garden designed by landscape architect Christophe Gautrand. Inaugurated in October, the Artists’ Garden surrounds the new Nicolas Ruinart Pavilion designed by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto in Reims.
