Walk the dogs!


Look what I've found for you today! A unique sculpture that can only be seen in Paris in this particular gallery - precisely called "Galerie Pièce Unique". If I'm right, this masterpiece was made by an artist called Cyrille André (funny picture of him here). The gallery is located in the 6th arrondissement, rue Mazarine where a lot of art can be found.

  1. I like the angular quality. Wonder what they're made of?

  11. I must be early. I wonder what's wrong.

    I like this idea for a gallery.

    I was about to say it's this sort of thing that makes Paris so wonderful, but this sort of thing plus about a thousand other sorts of things are what make Paris wonderful.

  13. Oh no Pont Girl, it can't be "Who let the dogs out?"...I think "How Much is that Doggy in the Window?" is much more appropriate, don't you?

    How much are those doggies in the window?
    The ones with the price tag so chér;
    How much are those doggies in the window?
    I wonder why they have no hair...


    Ok, sorry, it's the best I can do at this early in the morning.

  14. Jeff, I hate to contradict someone as reliable and informed as you, but I did some sniffing, around on the Piece Unique website and found this about the sculpture:

    "Parade", 2007
    polyester resin - Unique (CA 027)
    figure: cm 250 x 150 x 120
    dogs: cm 120 x 65 x 160 each

    What it doesn't say is how much are the doggies in the window.

  18. Wow! You seem to have quite a competition for your attention Eric. Not only Lynn and Monica are in this race, but now Anne, then of course there is Michael.

    Hope you choose wisely.

    As to the photo well, you are clearly know how to keep your audience interested. Hope all is all-right with you.

  19. Bonjour Eric, je trouve que le niveau des photos baisse un peu en ce moment. C'est dommage car je me régale tous les jours à les admirer... Pas facile de trouver l'aspiration tous les jours...

  20. Good job on the research, Michael. It was late last night and I didn't take time for any, just made it up. Sort of like wine reviews: a body of bronze with a scintillating sparkle of diamonds, underlaid with a steel lead and a tinge of leather.

    Great lyrics, aussi.

    By the way, shall I "drop by" in late April or early May? It's the weather I'm wondering about.

  21. Hot looking artist, scary looking sculpture.
    Always enjoy your comments, Michael. You, too, Jeff.

    Very interesting, Mr. Mutt, I get it (Duchamp?).

  22. Hmmm...rather like a "Papier-mâché" project gone awry. "Dogs in Bondage"?? Interesting, but a bit bizarre...wouldn't want to have to see it everyday..LOL!

    On the other hand, the link to the galerie itself is really interesting!! Merci!

  23. My goodness what a fracas! Shall it be cameras at dawn?

  24. Intriguing art display. I actually like this sort of art. Bravo!

  25. Merci, Michael - I concede: your version is more aptly suited ;)

  26. Anne a dit...

    Enough is enough!
    Lynn, get off Eric! He is mine, the boy is mine!

    ROFL!!!!!!

  27. Nice shot Eric. La Pièce Unique is really my favourite gallery in the 5th. They always have stuff there that makes you think, even if you don't like it...
