Daniel Firman at Palais du Tokyo and Gaspard Yurkievich at l’Hotel

Dear Shaded Viewers,

This is just a teaser , my evening started at the Palais du Tokyo with my friends Sayoko and Shoji. The highlight at Palais du Tokyo was Daniel Firman’s amazing elephant and for the Paris Parcours where art mixes with fashion, it was Gaspard Yurkievich’s exhibition at l’Hotel. To be continued….


Daniel Firman’s elephant

Daniel Firman entrusted the execution of his work Wursa (at 18,000 km de la Terre) an elephant balancing on its trunk, to the famous taxidermist Jean Pierre Gerard. I will show you a few of the stages tomorrow.
