In echo to the exhibition Couples Modernes presented at the Centre Pompidou-Metz from April 28 to August 20, 2018, the Galeries Lafayette Metz present on June 16, 2018 a modern embroidery workshop, imagined and led by the artist Sarah Poulain.

Accompanied by the artist, the children were initiated to the art of embroidery using recycled and materials diverted from their original use. Having a forms library at their disposal, made up of reproductions of fabric samples created by artists, the children were encouraged to find inspiration from textile works of Sonia Delaunay, Anni Albers or Sophie Taueber-Arp, presented in the exhibition Modern Couples. Each participant were able to create their own visual code and imagine a true textile language. The creations were then assembled by Sarah Poulain to form a large collective piece, exhibited in Galeries Lafayette in Metz until August 20, 2018.

A propos de l'artiste:
Sarah Poulain is an artist who lives and works in Thionville.
After studying at the University of Rennes and at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Caen and Milan, Sarah Poulain chose to put her taste for craftsmanship and her interest in paper at the service of her illustrations, to honor the traditional technique of paper cutting.

A propos de l'exposition:
From April 28 to August 20, 2018, the exhibition explores the artistic trajectory of the avant-garde artists of the first half of the twentieth century to offer a transversal reinterpretation of the history of art. It is the very notion of modernity that is questioned through the prism of this organic, protean, creative and sometimes ephemeral cell that was the couple of artists.
