THIS IS NOT A BOTTLE !
Homage to the bottle, source of intoxication
18/11/2015-5/6/2016

Two museums are bringing together their collections to cast new light on wine containers. The shape of a wine bottle may seem unchangeable, but there are, and always have been, many possible variations upon it. What links a wooden cup and a stylish carafe? What stories could be told by age-old containers and glass objets d’art? Through the exhibition and accompanying publication, This Is Not a Bottle ! sets up an unexpected encounter between two worlds: those of ethnology and contemporary creativity.

This project was born out of a desire shared by the two institutions. The Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts (mudac) and the Musée valaisan de la Vigne et du Vin (Valais Museum of the Vine and Wine MVVV) have brought together both their collections, enriched by loans from around Europe and the United States, and their perspectives on the bottle. They spotlight around sixty pieces, all of great cultural and artistic value. This dialogue between objects relating to the histories of wine and design also raises questions around forms, usages and symbols.
