“La Haute Cloche” is the perfect small ‘Bistro de quartier’, ideal to go to lunch or to diner in a relaxed way… A good approach to escape a little from the rhythm of the gold triangle’s glamour life.

EXHIBITION « Araki » At Museum Guimet

Exhibition Araki Nobuyoshi is not only the essential figure of Japanese contemporary photography but he is also the contemporary Japanese artist the most productive. This exhibition which is the most important devoted to Araki in France, recalls fifty years of its work (from 1965 to 2016) on 400 photographs.
Real intimate diary of the Master for which “to photograph is first of all a way of existing”, the exhibition will be spread according to a course set of themes, since the series devoted to the flowers, the scene of Tokyo, or the sentimental Travel, illustration of his honeymoon in 1971, followed by the Travel in winter in 1990, year of his wife’s death. Impressed of poetry, the work of Araki also bases on a ceaseless experimentation.
Therefore, the codes and stereotypes of the “medium” are revisited by the artist who intervenes on his clean negative or recovers sometimes his images of penmanship or painting, in a daring gesture, often tinted of humour.

The Araki exhibition will give to see and understand the rooting of the art of Araki in the Japanese traditional culture.
