Robert Stadler Philippe Katerine respectively designer and musician produce a musical and theatre performance inspired by the rounded, padded forms of Tephra formations – Irregular bomb, designed by Stadler. Some fifteen scenes describe the life of this singular piece of furniture, which suggests a critical, quirky reinterpretation of bourgeois codes values, and imagines a multitude of other possible uses transcending the conventional use of the sofa. From the complex and ambiguous relationship of the creators with their works – furniture or song – to the fantasy of the snake woman who explores all the sofa’s forms by crawling over it, the sofa become the centre of a series of situations accompanied by singing, the spoken word or silence, leading the viewer on a journey from the serious to the absurd.

Manish Arora for Paco Rabanne

Manish Arora for Paco Rabanne

Masters of Maximalism

Manish Arora for Paco Rabanne: A few days ago, Manish Arora not only presented his own, radiant collection, he also revealed his first line as Paco Rabanne’s new creative director. Hardly a surprising choice, mind you – both houses are famous for their “lavish and over-the-top aesthetics,” the Indian designer told us.
In his studio, minutes before his personal show, Manish was calm and so was his team. Both collections were entirely ready  —an exploit in itself—, and so he sat with us for coffee and talked about house-hopping.
Paco Rabanne came both a surprise and an evidence, as both designers have always naturally be drawn to sci-fi, elongated lines with busy, outlandish embellishments, and a passion for minute detailing – thus mixing a futuristic vision with a love for technique. “On top of being colorful, we are both obsessed with details; we always loved the idea of using ancient craft to achieve something very modern.”
And while Arora’s own show delivered a classic Manish, juggling between utter theatricality and hushed sensitivity, Paco’s inheritance was like a new playground for him to play in.
He began by paying homage to Rabanne’s iconic Rhodoid dresses of the 60s – a bodycon dress in metallic appliqués, reminiscent of gladiators; 3D sequins created a trompe-l’oeil effect, for silhouettes oscillating between a Greek goddess, an Amazon and a Pluto inhabitant.
Respecting both his and the Spanish designer’s love to merge classical skills and cutting-edge material, he found a happy middle-ground between the two aesthetics, by proposing holographic dresses pieced with visible stitching, reminiscent of both histories. “The main thing was, I had to imagine what Paco Rabanne would do today, with the contemporary tools at hand,” he said, “not just remaining in the past, but reinterpreting what the silhouettes mean in 2012.”
This also applies to how he thinks of women, he explained, “The Paco woman of before isn’t the same today. Women aren’t the same today. There is a freedom, in life and in each movement and that has to be kept in mind for every design.” Manish explained, adding “both lines have plenty of wearable pieces. Indeed, while his lines bore jeans (yes! jeans) for the first time, his collection for Paco also offered simple pencil skirts paired with a dark cinched jacket – closer to New Look than Mars Attacks.
But the true future of Manish-meets-Paco is behind the scenes: while both designers have always cherished old-school atelier practice, Manish is taking some of the pieces to be made in India, a first for the usually French-made label. “Some of the more intricate pieces will be made in my atelier in New Delhi, because there, you can have quality that simply doesn’t exist anymore in Europe,” he said, explaining that some pieces will require a dozen people at a time on a single dress, “this respects the precision both houses love, and also keeps ancient techniques alive.”
Hard to beat…

Leviathan, Anish Kapoor

Tuesday, May 10th, 2011

Each year MONUMENTA invites an internationally-renowned artist to turn their vision to the vast Nave of Paris’ Grand Palais and to create a new artwork especially for this space.

Anish Kapoor describes the work he is creating for MONUMENTA as follows: “A single object, a single form, a single colour.” “My ambition”, he adds, “is to create a space within a space that responds to the height and luminosity of the Nave at the Grand Palais. Visitors will be invited to walk inside the work, to immerse themselves in colour, and it will, I hope, be a contemplative and poetic experience.”

Designed using the most advanced technologies, the work will not merely speak to us visually, but will lead the visitor on a journey of total sensorial and mental discovery. A technical, poetic challenge unparalleled in the history of sculpture, this work questions what we think we know about art, our body, our most intimate experiences and our origins.
Spectacular and profound, it responds to what the artist considers to be the crux of his work: namely, “To manage, through strictly physical means, to offer a completely new emotional and philosophical experience.”

Larry Clark

Friday, October 8th, 2010

Even before the opening of his exhibition scheduled for the 8th October at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, the work of renowned photographer and sulphurous American filmmaker Larry Clark has already produced its first political effects. His images reflect the uncompromising disorientation and drift of teenagers trapped in drugs, sex, violence and despair. By showing the dark side of adolescence which the company insists on not seeing the distress, suffering and difficulties in life, its images are disturbing, at the risk of falling under the scope of law(as access to the exhibition will be only to minors under 18 years). In fact, the exhibition of Larry Clark reactive the complex and crucial debate on censorship, law, legality and transgression, in other words on politics. Respect for the right pays the high tribute for the sacrifice of the freedom of Art!!!

Mads in Mikkelsen

Monday, February 8th, 2010

It’s a gorgeous, sunny afternoon and I sip a coffee outside the cinema MK2 quai de la Loire. Feeling like I’m going on a blind date, I examine closely the comings and goings of people who are out walking. There he is! Mads Mikkelson in person. This handsome, Danish actor arrives wearing a pair of faded jeans, a checked shirt, leather jacket and, thank heavens, a pair of walking shoes for our promenade on the banks of the canal. No dark sunglasses that are always worn by stars. But a star he is!

He started his day in Paris with a big breakfast, a mushroom omelette “at least I think they were mushrooms”,cheese, bacon…A man’s breakfast and in order to keep in shape he rides around his native Denmark on a Lance Armstrong racing bike, helmet included…We go straight to the heart of the matter and I ask him if he’s a cool Dad, “I think I am for my two teenagers who are 16 & 12, but maybe they don’t think so, I took my son to school the other day on my motorbike, I really earned some bonus points there.” Move over Steve McQueen!

And what if his children want to follow in his footsteps one day? As he starts speaking about his craft he changes, becomes more expansive, “I’m not one of those actors who say that it’s a difficult job, a tormented one. I think that it’s a fantastic job, except when you don’t work, and that, unfortunately, is the big problem of many actors. So if they choose this job they will have some great moments!”

He loves dark humour, that’s a little catholic, a little Scottish, finds taboo subjects very funny…and has made two films in the genre by Anders Thomas Jenson…”A brilliant director and writer” ‘Adam’s Apples’; an outrageously funny film where he plays the role of a Pasteur “I play a crazy man, that’s all! Who’s been pretty wacky all his life!” and ‘The Green Butchers’, which is strewn with human body parts, “they were created by two fantastic guys who’ve been living in basements all their lives.” Suddenly his quirky sense of humour surfaces…

Lea Seydoux, a childlike actress

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

“And there appeared a beauty who drew upon herself the eyes of the world and one must believe that she was of a perfect beauty as she was admired in a place where it was the custom to behold beauty.”

The Princess of Cleaves: in this important novel about love and pride, which is a masterpiece of classical affectation, it is thus that the author, Mme de La Fayette, presents her heroine to us. Today, more than three hundred years later, the same spell appears to have struck the cinema in the conjuring up of Léa Seydoux, French cinema’s newly betrothed.

In the film La Belle Personne (The beautiful person), a contemporary variation of La Princess de Cleaves, directed by Christope Honoré, this young actress revealed the intensity of her presence/absence acting in front of the camera. A continual block of rage that masks a mysterious, abysmal sadness. The verdict of the profession? A Star is Born. At the last Cannes Film Festival she climbed the red-carpeted steps for Quentin Tarentino’s Inglorious Basterds in the company of Brad Pitt, Diana Kruger and Mélanie Laurent. She was awarded the Chopard trophy for the female discovery of the year before leaving for England and Robin Hood, a film that Ridley Scott is shooting with Russell Crowe in the leading role, Cate Blanchett, William Hurt and the prodigious Vanessa Redgrave. This discrete, ambitious young woman, who likes to go to bed late and wake up early, wants to “mark out her path”, be at the height of her capacities and asserts her wish to become a “great actress, who manages, in sum, to touch people.” She appreciates the sonority of the word actress “a classy, dry word that corresponds to the profession. It’s desire, elegance. A little like a woman who has every quality.”
*La Princess de Clèves Madame de La Fayette 

To read more… Traffic magazine 6, availabe at good bookstores and through out the website

« Il parut alors une beauté qui attira les yeux de tout le monde et l’on doit croire que c’était une beauté parfaite puisqu’elle donna de l’admiration dans un lieu où l’on était accoutumé à voir de belles personnes. »

Dans ce grand roman sur l’amour et l’orgueil qu’est La Princesse de Clèves, chef-d’œuvre de la préciosité classique, c’est ainsi que l’auteure, Mme de La Fayette, nous présente son héroïne. Aujourd’hui, plus de trois cents ans après, le même sortilège semble frapper le septième art à l’évocation de Léa Seydoux, nouvelle promise du cinéma français.

C’est justement dans le film La Belle personne, variation contemporaine de la Princesse de Clèves, réalisé par Christophe Honoré que cette jeune actrice révélait devant la caméra l’intensité d’un jeu tout en présence/absence. Un bloc de rage contenue qui dissimule une tristesse abyssale, mystérieuse. Verdict de la profession ? A Star is Born. Au dernier Festival de Cannes, elle montait les marches pour Inglorious Basterds de Quentin Tarentino entourée de Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger et Mélanie Laurent. Elle recevait dans la foulée le trophée Chopard de la révélation féminine avant de rejoindre l’Angleterre et l’équipe du film Robin Des Bois que tourne actuellement Ridley Scott avec Russell Crowe dans le rôle titre, Cate Blanchett, William Hurt et l’immense Vanessa Redgrave. Cette ambitieuse discrète, qui aime se coucher tard et se réveiller tôt, veut « tracer sa route », être au maximum de ses capacités et revendique le désir de devenir « une grande actrice, celle qui parvient en somme à toucher les gens. » Elle aime la sonorité du mot actrice « un mot plus classe, sec, qui correspond à ce métier. C’est le désir, l’élégance. Un peu comme une femme qui aurait toutes les qualités. »

Aude Wojtyna est une jeune comédienne de 28 ans. Elle livre une féminité fragile et enfantine. Paris la rend contemplative et ne cesse de l’émouvoir chaque jour, au fil des rues, des passants, des nouvelles découvertes. Elle s’y enivre des odeurs des saisons et s’en inspire pour les bandes son de ses films. Jeune fille gourmande, elle a un faible pour les macarons Ladurée. Mais son plus grand vertige, c’est le baiser de son homme dans son cou… Alors qu’elle vient de terminer le tournage de 8 de Gil Atanassof, elle travaille sur une adaptation des Carnets du sous-sol de Dostoïevski.
