Raphaël & Réjean

Raphaël & Réjean

 

Raphaël is born in 1988 in Seine-et-Marne, Réjean is born in Haute-Savoie in 1986.

It's in Paris, where they are living and working today, that they obtained their diploma at the Créapole school.

Raphaël began near José Lévy with whom he worked for the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres, and Galerie S.Bensimon. He then mbarked on his own project. To the antipodes of the contemporary standards, he finds his inspiration in a sense of obsolescence impregnated with strangeness and melancholy.

Réjean made his name near Hilton McConnico then near Frabrice Hyber. Between poetry of the object and mental fantasy, he creates a domestic landscape where irony is very close to dreamlike quality.

Since 2011, they share a studio where each other of them can either work on their own projects or collaborate. In 2013, they worked together on the project "Sur La Paille", a key manifest of their work. This project was presented as a Talents à la carte Maison & Objet exhibition, in Belgium for Maison Parisienne, and was recently exhibited at the Trapholt Museum of modern art in Denmark.

They think of themselves like inventing legends, new rituals, utopic and fantastic, through an artisanal and audacious work.

For the Galerie Gosserez, they reveal for the first time "Vhagarès", the first piece of the "Peplum"collection. Vagharès is like a treasure juste exhumed from an excavation...
