"Alchemy is the attempt to build a world in which every thing is the mind and the hand of something other. A world where everything breathes and yearns in unison."

"Modern Alchemy" is the brainchild of Viviane Sassen and Emanuele Coccia. As a photographer and a philosopher both leading figures in their respective fields they have woven together images and words, engaging in a profound dialogue deeply rooted in the Champagne terroir and the inspiring relationship Maison Perrier-Jouët maintains with art and nature.

"Art and nature are not only equivalent but that they are also twins born from the same mother."

Through a series of 80 photographs and an accompanying essay, intersections and collisions occur, creating a space where the creativity of matter across all living things can be newly appreciated. Images and ideas intertwine, as the history of planet Earth converges with that of artistic creation, and matter melds with the mind resulting in an endlessly diverse work of art. This establishes a modern alchemy where both vision and thought can be transformed and rejuvenated.

"As long as matter exists, nothing can prevent it from irreparably transforming everything around it. Such art imbues everything: each reality is more of an artist than a form."
