Last September, the Camille Fournet house launched a program—“Équinoxes,” named after the time in spring and autumn when the day finds its perfect balance—to support young contemporary artists. French artist Elsa Sahal, represented by Papillon gallery in Paris, is featured in this second edition (Maude Marris was the artist last edition). Sahal presented an in-situ sculpture at the Camille Fournet boutique, located at 5 rue Cambon, going through September 21. The work, “Acrobat,” is a collaboration between artisans from the Manufacture Camille Fournet and the artist: a meeting point between the company’s know-how and the artist’s technique. The modular sculptural work in an anthropomorphic aesthetic questions concepts of femininity and sensuality using clay, ceramics and, for the first time, leather. Françoise and Jean-Luc Déchery invited guests to discover the work and their new model, the 43.01, which will be released in September 2019; everyone then headed to the restaurant Da Rosa a few steps away.
