Inner Worlds | Pierre Gagnaire

From his Michelin-starred restaurant in Paris, French chef Pierre Gagnaire shares his vision of contemporary culinary art

The ‘Inner Worlds’ film series visits creatives in the places that inspire them

Pierre Gagnaire is a pioneer of contemporary cuisine. Throughout his career, he has shaken up the conventions of traditional gastronomy and made a name for himself with his inventive cooking. In this episode of ‘Inner Worlds’, he welcomes us to his eponymous restaurant on rue Balzac in Paris, a place which embodies his values.

‘I realized that cooking would be a way for me to express myself, a way to give meaning to my life,’ says Gagnaire. In his establishment, he is keen to share his passion for contemporary art; the newly-decorated dining room features a fresco by Adel Abdessemed. The chef also cites the American painter Cy Twombly, whose frenetic, instinctive practice is reflected in Gagnaire’s cuisine. ‘My ambition is to create emotion,’ he says, ‘and maybe that’s why I have such a strong connection to painting and art in general.’

Depuis son restaurant étoilé à Paris, le chef français Pierre Gagnaire partage sa vision de l’art culinaire contemporain

La série « Inner Worlds » rend visite à des créatif∙ive∙s dans les lieux qui les inspirent

Pierre Gagnaire est un pionnier de la cuisine contemporaine. Tout au long de sa carrière, il a bousculé les conventions de la gastronomie et s’est illustré par sa cuisine inventive. Dans cet épisode d’« Inner Worlds », il nous accueille dans son restaurant éponyme, situé rue Balzac à Paris, un lieu qui incarne ses valeurs.

« J’ai compris que la cuisine serait pour moi un moyen de m’exprimer, un moyen de donner du sens à ma vie », confie-t-il. Dans son établissement, il tient à partager sa passion pour l’art contemporain ; la salle nouvellement décorée arbore une fresque d’Adel Abdessemed. Il évoque aussi le peintre américain Cy Twombly, dont la pratique frénétique et instinctive se retrouve dans sa cuisine. « Mon ambition est de procurer de l’émotion, c’est peut-être ce qui explique ce lien très fort que j’ai avec la peinture et avec l’art en général. »
