I live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, yet I never seem to post pictures or write about it. This must change! What a waste! What was I thinking?!
Ok let's end this self-flagellation moment and start writing this post.
I'm not a
big fan of modern art, but since my last trip to Budapest and the visit of the Art Gallery, I've found myself more and more interested in contemporary art. Every year in Paris, at le Grand Palais, is held an exhibition of modern art, and I remember going there a few years ago,
nostalgy anyone? It's crazy how time flies by.. I look so young on these pictures, and so many things were different. One thing that hasn't changed though is my opinion on the exhibtion of this year. 3euros still seem too much to see a pile of clothes with the sound of an heartbeat resonating in the silence, if you ask me.However, this year was different. Intrigued I read about the exhibition online and decided to give it a try. I was actually excited about it, and it didn't disappoint. I still feel like I'm not able/educated/familiar enough to enjoy that kind of art fully, but I can enjoy it now... when I used to just stare at it and wonder why the hell I was here.
This year the exhibition was featuring the work of two russian artists, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, which was the creation of an utopian city, full of angels, cosmic power and magical gates.
The great thing about Paris is that it's beautiful almost everywhere, and that it's small. Which means that the Eiffel is never too far away, and this "museum" happens to be pretty close from the Eiffel so obviously, my sister&I couldn't resist walking a little bit along the Seine to say hi to the prety iron lady.
It's funny how it feels like the first time every single time I see her. Without fail, my heart always beats a bit faster, my palms get a bit sweaty and I cannot help but smile. After all, I do live in the most beautiful city in the world.
Let me know if you like that kind of daily life posts or not :) I'd love to write about some of my favourite places in Paris and such if you'd like to read about it! so let me know!
