Since 2006, FIAC, the annual art fair in October, has presented Hors Les Murs, a series of art installations in the Tuileries. The site specific works have also appeared in different outdoor and public spaces in Paris over the past years and this year includes the Place Vendome and the Eugene Delacroix Museum.
I went to photograph the 17 pieces on Tuesday in the Tuileries and two at Place Vendome. It was a crisp autumn day and the foliage of the garden against the sculptures was a great study in contrast.
The highlight of the Tulieries display was the modular prefab schoolroom made of glass, wood, aluminum and metal designed by Jean Prouvé in 1939, so ahead if its time.
