Contemporary art at l’Alpage de Porrez
At L’Alpage de Porrez, all the senses are awakened. The works of art of the altitude restaurant go far beyond the decorative function to offer a unique sensory experience. Like the chef’s cuisine, the atmosphère is unique, creative and daring.
The group Bel-Air Fine Art, partner of choice of l’Alpage de Porrez
At L’Alpage, each element is in its place and contributes to the success of the experience. The works, the woody and warm atmosphere, the selection of wines, the creation of the menus, the furniture, the porcelain… Every detail has been meticulously studied to allow customers to enjoy a privileged and confidential moment.
It is in this same spirit that the works of art adorning the walls of l’Alpage de Porrez were selected. To discover the work of renowned contemporary artists, the owners of the restaurant, Laëtitia and Christian, called on the expertise of Bel-Air Fine Art galleries.
Founded and directed by François Chabanian and his son Grégory, this Group, founded fifteen years ago, is one of the leading contemporary art gallery groups in Europe. Established in Switzerland since 2004, Bel-Air Fine Art has since opened a number of permanent or temporary galleries throughout Europe, in the Middle East as well as in the United States, in Miami.
Not far from L’Alpage, it is in Megève that contemporary art lovers can discover the painters, sculptors and photographers exhibited by Bel-Air Fine Art.
The artists of l’Alpage de Porrez
Chosen for their works as much as for their artistic approach, the artist-photographers whose photos are presented at L’Alpage each have their own unique universe.
Born in Paris in 1968, Cécile Plaisance first worked in finance, while developing a passion for photography during her travels around the world. She decided to make it her main activity a dozen years ago, articulating her work around the representation of women and femininity, notably through the image of the Barbie doll. Among her influences, she cites Helmut Newton, Pop Art, Richard Avedon, Niki de Saint Phalle and Mel Ramos.
Joël Moens de Hase
Born in Belgium in 1959, Joël Moens de Hase is famous all over the world for his photomosaics made up of thousands of photos of panties. Witness of his time, the artist uses new technologies to create. He places the woman at the center of his work and offers a double reading of his work, both in substance and in form.
Born in 1983 in Toulouse, Philippe Shangti began his career as a model before moving to the other side of the lens, as an autodidact. He moved to Saint-Tropez at the beginning of his career, where he developed for more than 10 years his art and his unique universe. Recognized throughout the world, Philippe Shangti is a total artist who masters all aspects of his work. Living now in Andorra since several years ago, he represented the Principality in 2019 at the 58th Venice Biennale with “Future is now”, a monumental and committed work.
Originally from Lyon, Patricia Faure had a thousand lives. Self-taught photographer, she traveled the world and had many jobs. For her art, she is inspired by scenes from everyday life which she sublimates with sensitivity, sensuality and humor.
