Virginie Houdet “Cartes à Jouer” limited edition, 2017
Virginie Houdet has created a delightful deck of playing cards with original designs based on the traditional canon. “Nourrie par les anciens, elle poursuit son aventure poétique dans le présent.” The logical order and symmetry of the deck has been respectfully and imaginatively reassembled with new colours and a poetic spirit. The primitive geometric designs derived from woodblocks are refreshed in an intelligent and aesthetic harmony.
