Monograph devoted to the singular visual lexicon that Nicolas Boulard organizes around wine and wine production, with two essays, an interview and a complete documentation on each project.
Born 1976 in Reims (France), Nicolas Boulard lives and works in Paris. The distinctive feature in
approach has to do with the
on the face of it crazy marriage
between art and wine.
His visual vocabulary is organized essentially around wine and various ways of producing it—a context with which the artist is familiar, it just so happens, because of his own
family history. His works,
which are at once immaterial
and tangible, precise and
endless, and hyper-sensitive
and anti-monumental, illustrate
a certain lucidity about
vine-growing systems, and, at
the same time, offer a re-reading
and a representation thereof
that break with tradition.
