Monsters in the garden

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a Metlink to Sunrise East, an installation by Ugo Rondinone at Jardin des Tuileries. A few days later, I went along for a visit at the park just after sunrise.

Here are the photos that I’ve taken on the rather chilly morning of what I think are rather loveable monsters. And since I don’t know which of these totems are supposed to represent which month of the year, I’m labelling them as hours on the clock, as per their position in the garden, where sun rises on the east (the Louvre side) at 12 and sets on the west (the Place de la Concorde side) at 6. ;-)

Rabarama in Latin Quarter

If you have been around Latin Quarter of late, surely you can’t miss a handful of rather unusual sculptures in and around the Pantheon area. These sculptures in human forms but decorated using strong colours and particular motives by Rabarama are currently on display and will be there for only another 10 days.

Rabarama is an Italian artist that has received wide critical acclaims for her creative way of portraying the human forms and expressiveness, linking the ideas of thoughts (e.g. life being a puzzle, or a maze, or a communicating piece) and geometry (using shapes and lines). Her sculptures have been travelling and on exhibition worldwide, from America to China, delighting modern art fans, including me.

So go on now, and have a look around! Keep your eyes peeled – there should be 7 of them. Or at least that’s how many I’ve found. ;-)
