We are pleased to announce that a magnificent “Altarpiece” by Jeremy Demester, L’ombre des heures, Le retable du temps, 2021, has been inaugurated at the Maison Hennessy’s barrel-making workshop, the Atelier de Tonnelleire, at its historic home in Cognac.

Translating to “The Shadow of the Hours, The Altarpiece of Time”, Demester’s monumental artwork was specially commissioned for the space. The piece is above all the fruit of an encounter between artist and artisans around all that unites them - handmade craftsmanship, the mystery of materials and the changes imparted by time. A video documenting the making of this work can be viewed on Hennessy’s YouTube channel.
