“The Corbieres belong to the new generation which matured with the consumer society and which resolutely chooses to prefer that which endures to that which fades… As with all that is beautiful and timeless.» - François Baudot
Pierre Passebon invited Anne and Vincent to create an exhibit together for the first time. The gallery had presented Vincent’s work in a solo show at Impasse des Bourdonnais in 1993. This first exploration of their combined crafts was an immediate success even as they pioneered a new vocabulary in the arts and crafts world. Themes of multi-references in styles and periods were already present, as well as their exploration of sophisticated techniques specific to each of their crafts. The show at the Galerie du Passage in 2006 presented the first evocation of what has become a defining theme in Anne and Vincent’s collaborative work: imagining the collected furniture, sculptures, and textiles from the multiple lives of “Orlando” by Virginia Woolf. At the invitation of Jacques Grange and Pierre Passebon, Anne and Vincent presented their creations in the special gallery at the Mark Hotel, New York with a selection of renowned artists and designers in 2007. Over time, the shows have been characterized by their power to resume a stylistic vocabulary through different times and civilizations
