Story of a meeting, creation of two tapestries
The fruit of a happy collaboration between the Hiquily Committee, the Galerie Chevalier and the Atelier Catherine Bernet, the La Sprinteuse and La Détachée tapestries celebrate the artist's talent through a medium that he only explored during his lifetime. briefly in the early 1960s.
Together, the Galerie Chevalier and the Committee select_several works by Philippe Hiquily. The silhouettes selected are those of La Sprinteuse, Indian ink on paper from 1989 and La Détachée or La Linotte, Indian ink on paper from 1977.
The female figure of La Sprinteuse first appeared in the artist's work in 1987 with watercolor and ink on Le Café paper.
"Hiquilyenne creatures", La Sprinteuse and La Détachée are displayed against a white background, in the heart of the bass-string tapestries made by Atelier Catherine Bernet in Felletin. In a desire to create_exceptional pieces, Amélie Margot Chevalier, Céline Letessier and Tara Hiquily choose to make only 3 editions of each tapestry, from these boxes.
