Firstly I must say on a personal note, that I'm not a huge fan of the organizer's choice of images so far especially with these 2 twin Barbie dolls fondling each other in full glory, but hey beggers can't be choosers right. Ahmm but how is it representing tactile creations as such? It's somehow lacking some kind of intelligence just like the subjects you've chosen. There'll be 95 creators showcasing their finest handmade wares... not 95 naked chics possibly shopping or selling their "wares", oh great and it says 'Free entry' as well.
Thank goodness the saving grace is in it's location; at one of the most popular places for hipsters from around the world to visit in Paris, Marais. One can find in the immediate area of this venue are shops like Muji(one of my fave places to shop for non-label zen looking items, hence the name Muji in japanese means 'no label' indeed!), Corpus Cristie, COS(again my absolute fav!), Comptoir de cotoniere, yummmmy-to-die for falafel and cheese cake etc. It's nearer to St. Paul metro if you're thinking of coming, in a massive space that can fit up to fully clothed 100 creators.

I'm so excited by this small exhibition which I'd be showcasing at Carmen Ragosta's Boutique together with the fabulous Paris based contemporary photographer Dana Cojbuc celebrating the start of the Annual photography fair Paris Photo, from November 18th to the 21st... though for now the advertising image is the only thing all 3 of us are working on together, nonetheless I'm chuffed. I find her work to be contemporary and surreal, capturing flighty moments, yet poetic, whimsical and smart... see the pics attached.
The exhibition will be located at Carmen Ragosta's boutique. She runs on tandem as a cook and designer at her boutique/restaurant NAPOLIPARIS, yes you heard me! It's also a vegetarian restaurant that operates on occasion just below in the cave of the boutique. Carmen has retained some of the old rustic Parisien fit-outs; floor tiles in the shop with my favorite 'Trompe l'oeil' pattern(see last pic), un-painted 100 yr old cast iron railings guiding one down towards the cave, open stoned walls on all sides with many stories to tell etc. All in all, just the perfect ensemble harmonizing her creations nicely in contrast with the rustic vintage interior; as well as her use of finest fabrics of silk, linen, velvet with small surprised details of subtle pleats and folds here and there... like icing on a cake. Chocolate or black forest cake... maybe both.
So go get yourself a plane or train ticket now if you're not based in Paris... the opening is on the 16th of November 2010, starting at 6pm. You'll have both your visual and oral sensory filled with joy as The Carmen Ragosta will be serving her Italian dishes to boot!
