Art fans, take note. Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris will host a Hidden Workshop by Chinese artist Liu Bolin providing a sensory experience for locals and travelers to witness the art of camouflage.
Liu Bolin, nicknamed the “invisible man,” has made works of art that blend into France’s Champagne terroir. They showcase the art of champagne-making.
In some of the paintings, Bolin vanishes into the scenery with a Cellar Master. Other pieces demonstrate the production staff in the countryside of Champagne, showcasing what is necessary to create the sparkling wine.
The artwork will be available for the first time in a Hidden Workshop at the Le Royal Monceau Suite. Those who go to see the art of camouflage will be welcomed and guided by the hotel’s art concierge Julie Eugène. When arriving, visitors will see a sublime work showcased in the center of the lobby. They will then see the other art in the hallway going towards the Hidden Workshop.
The suite will also include a Champagne bar, providing glasses of Ruinart Millesime 2010. Private dinners can be organized with a menu orchestrated by Chef Hideki Endo of Matsuhisa Paris and Liu Bolin, which includes a Champagne-pairing, providing groups with a sensory and artistic experience.
Liu Bolin’s Hidden Workshop at Le Royal Monceau, Raffles Paris is available from Tuesday, October 23 to Sunday, November 10, 2018.
