Camille Claudel exhibition in Roubaix

Last year was the 150th birthday of the French sculptor and graphic artist Camille Claudel, also known for her turbulent relationship with Auguste Rodin. The Art and Industry Museum, La Piscine in Roubaix (10 min by metro fr Lille) celebrated Camille Claudel by having the largest exhibition ever made with more than 150 works.

This was one of the main reasons why I went to Lille a few weeks ago and after almost 3 hours in line we finally entered the exhibition salon. The exhibition ended on February 8th, but I took a few photos that I’m happy to share with you.

I’m very curious on Camille Claudel and I think I’m going to Fnac soon and buy the two movies about Camille Claude, the one with Juliette Binoche (2013) and the earlier one with Isabelle Adjani (1988). Anyone of you who have seen them?

Inoubliable Marilyn

I guess I will never have enough watching photos of the beautiful Marilyn Monroe, always discovering new ones I haven’t seen before. A few weeks ago when walking around in Marais I stumbled upon a small gallery that is having an exhibition with photos on Marilyn Monroe taken by different photographers. Rare photos, go there before February 25th..last day of the exhibition !

Jean-François Baecker


Yesterday I went and saw the French photographer, Jean-François Baecker‘s exhibition at La Galerie du Pont Neuf. He is both a street photographer and news reports. I liked his way of capturing different sceneries in a way that evoke many emotions. Below you’ll see a selection of the photos that were shown. Today, Sunday February 15th is the last day of the exhibition – not to be missed ;-)

Returned from Copenhagen last Friday just in time to “visit” Copenhagen, in Paris ;-)
MERCI, the concept store in Marais are during a short period, until February 7th, exposing some Danish goodies! Raincoats, rubberboots, the classic Margrethe bowl, Kay Bojesen’s teddybear…you name it. I fell in love with the tableware in ceramics made by KH Würtz, restaurants such as Noma is using.

Maison & Objet Paris 2015


Maison & Objet , my favourite event takes place twice a year in Paris. This year they had a 20 years anniversary and I was one of the lucky ones getting a piece of their birthday cake. For proof, just scroll down ;-) It was delicious, however I would have liked to keep the blue assiette :-( I bumped into Carol at the Cook + design hall, out of all places..what are the odds when the venue where it takes place is more than 250 000 sqm ?! I was happy to see her and we did some browsing together. Next time I better save two full days for this event. Half a day is not enough, lesson learned.
