Creating a palace that lasts a single breath, peopled with French design like an accumulation of accidents.
Jean-Charles de Castelbajac
For this exhibition, VIA has commissioned Jean-Charles de Castelbajac to devise a poetic scenographic concept, emphasising the excellence of French art de vivre.
For NO TASTE FOR BAD TASTE the designer has pro-duced a unique “mise-en-scene” inspired by the ten values which embody le French Design.
Who better than Jean-Charles de Castelbajac to show-case the multidisciplinary creativity at the heart of French culture ?
Always possessed of a cross-cutting vision, Castelbajac has never believed in boundaries between fashion, art, architecture and design. Driven by a relentless creative passion, he has immersed himself in every art form and has an unrivalled breadth of experience.
What he brings to le French Design is not just his scenography, but genuine artistic direction. He is involved with the design, the music, the flavour, the graphics and the overall style of this exhibition.
From the beginning of his career, he has broken new ground, becoming the pioneer of a cross-cutting, indeed all-embracing art, deeply rooted in tradi-tion. Art meets fashion, design, architecture and music...
His world revolves around unusual encounters and surprising combinations. His creative passion encompasses a sprawling oeuvre with a foundation in pop culture.
