"Rain Cloud" uses 6,000 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and is part of Fabrice Hyber's "Raw Materials" exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo which runs until 7 January 2013, supported by Swarovski.
Parisian contemporary gallery Palais de Tokyo was the funky setting for an exclusive dinner date on October 17. The great and the good of the art world gathered to toast artist Fabrice Hyber during FIAC (the international contemporary art fair) in honor of his latest exhibition and to celebrate Swarovski’s continuing partnership with the Palais.
Presented by Swarovski, Hyber’s solo show Matières Premières (Raw Materials) spreads over 1,200 square metres of the space. Highlights are the “weather rooms”—including one that greets visitors with a gust of wind—plus a fluffy cloud sculpture, complete with 6,000 sparkling crystal raindrops. The show, which runs until January 2013, also features a huge lipstick sculpture that needs regular reshaping!
High-profile attendees at the crystal-strewn tables included designers Anthony Vaccarello and Berluti’s Alessandro Sartori, along with the Serpentine Gallery’s Hans-Ulrich Obrist.
