Diptyque’s relationship with creation dates back to the origins of the Maison, itself born from the meeting of three multidisciplinary artists. With the conviction that art is a fertile ground for imagination, the Maison has continued to affirm the power of artistic practice ever since. It has supported creativity in all its forms, namely expanding the number of collaborations with artists, who are invited to share their sensitivity and vision and to build new poetic imaginations.
In 2023, participating in Paris+ par Art Basel for the first time, Diptyque resumes the collaboration begun two years prior as part of the Grand Tour with the artist Joël Andrianomearisoa. The Maison gives him carte blanche to create an original work where imagination — the real or dreamed journey, and the perfume L’Autre, which he wears and has chosen for its ability to transport elsewhere — hold a central place.
The materiality of emotions, so dear to the artist, is expressed in a poetic way.
Using three key steps and three key words, UN AUTRE MONDE begins a new story via an artistic trilogy. For this, the artist Joël Andrianomearisoa uses his signature mediums such as drawing, writing, sculpture and even paper, which—mixed with olfaction—give this creation a sensitive and sensual dimension.
It is an invitation to dream of a new elsewhere, infinite and yet specific to each person in accordance with their desire and their intimate geography. It’s an invitation to question the state of the world.
