Breath of an Architect
Published by Fondation Cartier

From December 9, 2023 to April 21, 2024, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain presents an exhibition created by the Indian architecture studio, Studio Mumbai, directed by Bijoy Jain. Born in 1965 in Mumbai, Bijoy Jain explores in his studio the links between art, architecture, and materials.

For the Fondation Cartier, Bijoy Jain has conceived an exhibition inspired by the rhythm of breathing, offering a space for reverie and contemplation in dialogue with Jean Nouvel’s building. Uniting man and nature, light and shadow, bamboo, brick and stone, Bijoy Jain has formed a meditative landscape taking us into the heart of creation. Sculptures, objects, and furniture interact with artworks by Chinese painter Hu Liu and Turkish ceramist Alev Ebüzziya Siesbye, invited by the architect.

The catalog published in conjunction with the exhibition invites readers to discover Bijoy Jain’s aesthetics and philosophy. Accompanying the conception of the exhibition, this richly illustrated book focuses on the artist’s drawings, photographs of his studio and works in the making.
