FLORE / BOOK CLUB

This book is a great treasure from Marrakech. During my travels I always go to bookstores to find books about the city. However I found zero bookshop in Marrakech. But in a store I came across by this book/the only book in there -a french/spanish photographers black and white photos from Morocco. I am happy to share a great discover of an artist FLORE and a lovely book. Her photographs are pure beauty.

THE LIFE OF STONES

Man Ray once said, entering Brancusi’s studio was like “penetrating into another world.” He described the studio as a sacred forest, an enchanted or mythical place where every object, even the tools, seemed to “vibrate with a supernatural presence.I want to introduce you one of my greatest inspiration, sculptor Constantin Brancusi. Last week I was in Atelier Brancusi,  and I had the chance to see the replica of his Paris studio in a building near Centre Pompidou, designed by Renzo Piano. 

I had blown away by his world of stones, woods, forms, colors.
I guess the dust was the only thing missing in this carefully detailed copy of the his studio in Paris.
 

MUSEE RODIN

Museum of Rodin is one of the most beautiful museums in the world with stunning architecture and an enchanting garden with the sculptures.
I love seeing sculptures in the open air. It has something very appealing to me. It is like listening to music in the open air. You know it is totally a different experience compared to the music played in a room. The melody flies in the air and the your ears just catch the notes. Looking at a sculpture in a garden almost has the same affect. And one of the best part is that you can touch them, the birds can touch them, even the rain can touch them. And it makes the feeling so much different in so many ways. You just suddenly feel the sculpture has an all other life in the garden. (compared to a sculpture in a sterilised room where you cannot touch.)
It is a must seen place in Paris.
