Vincent and Anne Corbière
The journeys of Orlando
The exhibition is titled ‘The Journeys of Orlando’ because Vincent and Anne Corbière draw inspiration from this literary figure created by Virginia Woolf. ‘Orlando is an imaginary companion,’ explains Anne. ‘A character with multiple lives, alternating between man and woman, evolving through different eras and countries. With Vincent, we imagine the objects and artworks that would have surrounded Orlando throughout his history. The shadow of his presence allows us to explore realms that would otherwise remain hidden.’
With their expertise, the couple has been pursuing a unique artistic approach for over twenty years. One sculpts wood or iron like a classical artist, while the other creates unique fabrics with surprising and luxurious textures.
