About the Artist
Emmanuelle Moureaux is a French architect, artist and designer. Profesor at Tohoku University of Art and Design, and the founder of Emmanuelle Moureaux architecture + design. Inspired by the layers and colors of Tokyo that built a complex depth and density on the street, and the traditional spatial elements like sliding screens, she has created the concept of “shikiri”, which literally means “dividing (creating) space with colors”.
Her work extend to a number of projects, including architectural design for Sugamo Shinkin Bank, art installations for UNIQLO and ISSEY MIYAKE, “100 colors” art installation series and etc.
Emmanuelle Moureaux sees the butterfly represent enchanting beauty and eternality, just like Lancôme Absolue. She is inspired by colors that we observe in daily life to create an emotional space full of colors, provoking every sense to connect with the power of perpetual beauty.
This is a dream world of kaleidoscopic colors: 40,000 butterflies are in 100 colors, promising endless possibilities. It is extremely impactful visually. Yet beyond simply seeing the colors, the artist wishes for the audience to feel the colors and their power to inspire emotions of joy and energy in people. In so doing, the artist conveys the message: color is perpetual, just like beauty can transcend time to be eternal.
