‘Dear Eugénie’ photo exhibition, Maison Guerlain, Paris, France
MTArt Artist Delphine Diallo’s work has been acquired by the permanent collection of Guerlain, as part of the ‘Dear Eugénie’ photo exhibition at Maison Guerlain – featured alongside works by Charlotte Rampling, Audrey Tautou, and more.
Guerlain’s perfume and beauty creations provide opportunities for encounters with talented artists and for over 12 years Guerlain has also been a partner of the FIAC Paris.
To celebrate the historic Eau de Cologne Impériale’s 170th birthday, created for the union of Eugénie de Montijo and Napoleon III back in 1853, Guerlain asked eleven women artists to revisit the mythical bottle in a photograph. A way of letting creativity take up the codes of this legendary bottle in a spirit of sisterhood that brings a breath of modernity to this exhibition.
Delphine creates ‘Impression’ a photography collage and personal dialogue with the Empresses – curated by Fisheye Gallery.
“I chose to make this image on a burgundy velvet background in full sunlight. It’s the bees’ connection to the sun; as soon as it rises, they fly off to new adventures. This work is a tribute to artist notebook research” – Delphine Diallo.
Visit “Dear Eugénie” until 4th September at their historical address Maison Guerlain, 68 Avenue des Champs Elysées, Paris 8th.
