Béatrice Valentine Amrhein is a French artist who expresses her art mainly through painting, but also drawing, photography and video-making.
Her creations and installations have been exhibited internationally in various museums and contemporary art galleries, such as the Palais de Tokyo and the NextLevel Gallery in Paris, the Contemporary Museum of Baltimore or the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art in Tel Aviv.
She also hand-manufactures objects and accessories which are inspired by her art and universe and accompany her in her daily life under the manifesto Made in Valentine.
In 2015 and 2016, she presented exclusively at Made in Town a series of necklaces named Healing Chaplets, as well as a line of decorative ceramics that were part of her Wild Rabbit’s Banquet exhibition and were displayed in a vegetable scenography imagined by flower-maker Mathilde Vial from On the sunny side.
Made in Metz. A graduate from the Institut de Commerce de Nancy (ICN Business School), where he attended a cross-disciplinary management program dedicated to the luxury industry, he initiated a study as part of his master’s thesis on the role of craftsmanship in this specific sector and its ability to contribute to the emergence of new production systems. It is when working at the Institut National des Métiers d’Art that he discovered the true wealth of the French heritage. He now wishes to educate the public about local know-how from all over the world and their cultural roots, through a selection of diverse projects in the fields of fashion, design and art.
Mapp’Rando was created by three young entrepreneurs from the Tarn region. The objective is to attract hikers by giving them all the informations about pedestrian, cycling or equestrian trails in the same area.
On the occasion of the launch of the inaugural issue of Comment Section, Made in Town invites the young Parisian publishing house Holoholo to presente the genesis of this project and its particular principles – writing, graphic design, and publishing – put in place by this artistic collective for the conception and production of these periodical reviews.
In order to promote the know-how and the characteristics of La Rochère glass factory, located in Passavant-la-Rochère in the French department of Haute-Saône, Made in Town conducted a series of six video interviews of French and European designers, who have integrated the know-how of the glass factory into their creations. Each in their own way, they mastered glass.
