Hyeres Encore – CHristian Lacroix with David Dubois, CHristian RIzzo, Daniel Firman and Marc Turlan

Dear SHaded Viewers,

These days with the transit strike it is nearly impossible to get me to leave my neighborhood. Galeries Lafayette was celebrating Hyeres Encore dedicating their window to Marc Turlan with beautiful, Julie Gayet installed inside and upstairs their gallery space to the Christian Lacroix seen by David Dubois Christian Rizzo and Daniel Firman exhibition that was last seen at the Festival International de Mode and Photography in Hyeres last spring at the villa Noailles.

When I arrived I was wondering why everyone seemed to be standing outside. Soon, I understood, Julie Gayet was about to begin her performance in the window with Marc Turlan’s exhibition. She read, we saw her lips move but heard nothing. It worked very well.
