Artist Rashid Al Khalifa's recent series Les Roses de Bagatelle opens at Guerlain, 68 Champs-Élysées, FR-75008 PARIS on 5 May 2018 at 10am. The exhibition shall remain open until 8th June 2018.


Inspired by the history of the Château de Bagatelle and the allure of the gardens that surround it, Rashid Al Khalifa’s most recent series was created as an homage to Guerlain whose scent “Le Jardin de Bagatelle’ took inspiration from the same park when it was crafted in 1983.

A continuation from the iconic convex form takes precedence as the foundation of Rashid's work, each piece in these series employ delicate and intricately crafted aluminum flowers onto the curved, matte-enameled surface, in patterns. The resulting symmetrical compositions further demonstrate Rashid's desire to formulate statements on minimalism, purity and balance, this time including natural representations of roses upon the foreground.

Interestingly, each work is distinguishable by their pattern, or by the number of roses that adorn their surface. Yet this number is not an indication of the authority of an individual piece, just as a single rose holds no less value than a bouquet of roses - its value is dependent on the context within which it is presented.
