2021

And here we go again!

I am having breakfast while everyone else is still sleeping. Drinking tea instead of coffee because it is “Lucky Irish Breakfast” tea. A bit of luck to start 2021 seemed like a good thing to do.

I have a new planner, from designer Adam J. Kurtz. It is already messy inside with ideas and lists.

My cat “Rasputin” is going crazy around the house, running and jumping on things. Looks like he is excited for the New Year.

And on today’s agenda, we are going to visit voma.space

Zao Wou-Ki Exhibition at MAM in Paris

If you like abstract art and happen to be in Paris before January 2019 you shouldn’t miss Zao Wou-Ki exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris. With the title “L’espace est silence”, it is not a retrospective but a selection of large format paintings. The exhibition is well curated and the paintings shine in the big and bright rooms of the museum. 

I took some bad pictures. The official video is thousand times better:

The only thing I missed on the exhibition was more detail on the painting process. 

I would love to see Fabienne Verdier and Zao Wou-Ki paintings exhibited together.
