A visit of the Enfant-Rouges market square.
In April 2018, the Culturespace network created the Atelier des Lumières in Paris. This new digital art center was installed in the building of an old foundry that used to produce cast iron. The inaugural lightshow was themed around Klimt, actually encompassing the Vienna secession more broadly, in particular with pieces from Egon Schiele. These were presented together with original creations.
This year, my visit of the Paris international fair of contemporary art (FIAC) turned out to be a lot about Brussels-based American dancer Daniel Linehan, who was invited for a couple performances.
The 20th Techno Parade took place last September in Paris, spreading heavy beats from the Louvre to the place d’Italie. The cold autumnal rain of the beginning didn’t wash away the enthusiasm of this fun dancey mob.
Here are pictures of the Existe en Ciel circus solo, performed by acrobat, dancer and comedian Théo Touvet. The title of the show is a pun suggesting that something exists up in the sky, while sounding like the word “existential”.
Many thanks to the Japan Foundation and the House of Japanese culture in Paris (Maison de la Culture du Japon à Paris) for the wonderful Fukami exhibition, held in the Salomon de Rothschild mansion. It was perfect from start to finish, with an amazing choice of works of art, a splendid venue, and a marvelous staging.
Dōmo arigatō gozaimashita !
Here’s another and final, short peek at my shootings during the Paris 2018 Gay games, this time with urban dancing and wrestling.
Here are some shots of the dance gala of the Gay games 10, held in Paris from August 4th to 12th. Many thanks to the organizers for a lovely event !
On July 15th, the French football team (psst.. talking about soccer here) won the FIFA world cup in Russia, causing scenes of jubilation in the streets, throughout the country. These provided pretty good pictures.
And here is the opening of my 2018 season with a celebration of love and diversity. You’ll find below these lines a little glimpse of the 2018 Paris Pride parade, held on june 30th.
