Julien Benhamou has stars in his eyes. And by stars, we mean the Etoiles of the Opera. From the greatest stages of the world to unexpected and unique locations, Benhamou knows how to create and immortalize exceptional moments.
In his body of work, dancers seem both withheld and free, timeless and ennobled, frozen and in movement.
Leclaireur and Benhamou enjoy a fruitful and creative friendship. In the last year, the collaboration has lead to three series that defy gravity. One of them, featuring Juliette Guernez wearing sumptuous gowns by Maria Lucia Hohan, Zuhair Murad, Alex Perry – and in Sylvere Lamotte’s arms – in the heart of the Hotel Raphael.
The refined Parisian palace, as smitten by the artist as by the work, has chosen to present to Julien Benhamou’s exhibition, which will be privy to its lucky guests.
Julien Benhamou makes a stop at the Hotel Raphael, 17 Avenue Kébler in Paris, from March 14 to June 14 2017.
