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.
As in the times of the Dolce Vita, inside the atelier they still take measurements of the foot, choose the hides, applications and models and after about a month of work you are presented with a new pair of Albanese made-to-measure shoes.
Made in Town welcomes De Bonne Facture for the presentation of a series of models which cast light on the know-how of the French artisans and producers who created them.
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 four short videos shot in the heart of the company's workshops.
