A superb exhibition
I saw a stunning exhibit today: It's called "Recup" ("récup" is colloquial for "saving old stuff to turn them into something else, like saving Styrofoam to insulate a room) and it is to be seen until Jaunary 4th, at L'Espace Blancs Manteaux in the heart of Le Marais. As you guessed, most of the art pieces exhibited there are made of plastic wastes, soda cans, bits of wood... But don't go thinking the result looks like the last Ikea cabinet you assembled! Most of the pieces are stunning. I chose to show you a sculpture by Julien Allegre, which may look a bit "rough" to you, but I really loved it. Check his website.
