Raphaël Barontini – July 2021

 

SOUKHOS exhibition by Raphaël Barontini, result of his LVMH Métiers d'Art residency, was organized with the support of Reiffers Art Initiatives and Mariane Ibrahim Gallery.

 

Raphaël Barontini is a 36 years old visual artist graduated from the Beaux-Arts of Paris and from the Hunter College of Art of New York. His work of « creolization of pictures » has been exhibited by numerous museums and galeries throughout the world, especially through remarkable performances in the USA, in Savannah, Fort Worth, or very recently in Chicago.

In his protean work, the artist constantly questions art-craft relationships, west-east, dreamlike-political. In 2020, he is selected by LVMH Métiers d’Art for an artistic residency at the heart of the Heng Long tannery, in Singapore, renowned for its exceptional expertise in tanning and finishing of crocodilian leather.

 

All the works produced as well as several representative pieces of the artist's work were presented at Studio des Acacias by Mazarine in July 2021.
