"The Little Theatre of excess" at the Chapelle Saint-Louis, Poitiers.
For its inaugural program, the Miroir of Poitiers took the opportunity of the arrival, in 2014, of a new designer in charge of the windows shop of the historic head office of Hermès, to present his work and tell his approach.
Exploring the annual theme, defined by Pierre-Alexandre Dumas, artistic director of Hermès, Antoine Platteau works in a studio that looks like a cabinet of curiosities. compulsive draftsman, passionate about shapes, materials, textures and colors, the designer uses few digital techniques, preferring human-scale experimentations. By working today on the windows shop of the Hermès store, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris, Antoine Platteau claims more than ever his passion for staging. His “small theater of excess” invites each of us to the indescribable pleasure of contemplation.
Until the 18th of September. www.grandpoitiers.fr
