“We came up with the idea for the project together with the aim of surprising visitors by giving them a unique experience, in quite an unexpected place. As for the exhibition’s theme and its title, “Sous le Ciel”, it came from my fascination with a city’s sky.”

“For me, every city has a strong relationship with “its” sky. It influences its population, its energy, and its overall atmosphere. A city’s sky changes our perception of it: it can be nostalgic and make us reflect one day, and then it can be happier the next. With this in mind, I designed several pieces, including an installation which has been placed under the glass dome at Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, as the protagonist in a story in which I reproduce the idea of clouds and the sky.”

“I designed the “Sous le Ciel ” project in response to this everyday life that is reflected in the constant changes above our heads.” Says the artist.
