The exhibition « Le Feu Sacré / Designers and Glass blowers» (April 7 – May 16/ Institut Français Milano) presents pieces imagined by some twenty designers at the Meisenthal International Glass Art Centre (CIAV).
From the very start, the CIAV has always nurtured the ambition of placing traditional glassmaking production in its time. So in different situations of cooperation, contemporary designers work together with glass-blowers to reinterpret their expertise. For the designers, it is not just the glass but the whole village which is its building material. Its inhabitants, the industrial wasteland, morning mists, the majestic forest … Meisenthal is a time-space for a fragile but sensitive art of context, the mother of all things.
