THE MOULIN ROUGE ENTERS THE WORLD OF DIGITAL ART THROUGH AN EXCEPTIONAL COLLABORATION WITH THE ARTIST LUDOVIC BARON
On the occasion of the 133rd anniversary of the Moulin Rouge, the French photographer presented a unique art-photo project that will invite the public to travel through the true history of this historic and mythical place.
The first work in the collection, named “Vedette”, was revealed on October 6 on the Moulin Rouge stage. Ludovic shares his enthusiasm:
“We have been working for more than 5 years on this creative photo collection project with the Moulin Rouge teams and the arrival of the NFTs made us want to make our collaboration even more exceptional by being present both in the real world but also in the virtual world through these original works. It is a great pride for me to be able to work with the most emblematic cabaret in the world, both for the incredible hidden stories to be told in my paintings, but also for the magic that reigns there. From the offices to the stage, the Moulin Rouge is a real delight where everyone wears a sincere smile and a benevolence rarely seen elsewhere. October 6, birthday; I could never have imagined, even in my wildest dreams, that I could experience this as an artist one day. »
Jean-Luc Pehau-Sorensen, Communications Director of the Moulin Rouge explains:
“The meeting with Ludovic Baron and the discovery of his works were decisive in launching our collaboration. His vision of a subject is very personal but above all very creative, elegant and subtle and could correspond perfectly to our universe. Our history is rich, the themes numerous, the imagery abundant and therefore a very beautiful source of inspiration to create this collection of works. For the first time, we are entrusting a photographer with the creation and distribution of a collection that takes up the substance of our history. »
"STAR": WHEN MISTINGUETT BRINGS THE FEATHER TO THE MOULIN ROUGE
1925, Mistinguett is the new big star of the Moulin Rouge. She brings the pen! She is at the origin of the great Music-Hall revues with feathers, rhinestones and sequins which were a source of inspiration for cabarets around the world. The Moulin Rouge remains today the main stage to perpetuate its style and creativity.
Ludovic clarifies:“My painting sublimates an icon… The red and the feather transport us in a marvelous whirlwind opposite the Moulin of the Roaring Twenties… And as an icon moves the crowds… the glamor and the beauty are there, the public too. »
