A Saturday visit at Patrick Seguin gallery in Paris’s Bastille neighborhood (ccupying a 300 sqm (3200 sq ft) space, rearchitectured by Jean Nouvel)
The exhibition at the present is called “Kurimanzutto“ hosting works by Damián Ortega, Gabriel Kuri, Jonathan Hernández, Gabriel Orozco, Jimmie Durham, Gabriel Sierra and Rirkrit Tiravanija. “… this exhibition unfolds around considerations on the themes of accessibility to the public, of restriction to domestic use, but also of travel experience, of exile and areas of conflict.
kurimanzutto was established in 1999, in Mexico City, with the aim of bringing together and supporting the work of a group of young artists, both Mexican and foreign.” (gallery press release)

Saturday late afternoon at Gagosian gallery, a solo exhibition by Cecily Brown (her first one in Paris- all new works), exhibition runs October 19-December 20, 2014
Something that’s just glimpsed seems more real than something that’s fully described.

An amazing evening dinner (thanks to an invitation by my doctor Dr Rubinger, at “Porte 12“ at Rue de Messageries, on 10th, with heading Chef Vincent Crepel; Taiwanese chef André Chiang (whose restaurant Andre in Singapore) opened Porte 12 just 2 months ago: interesting journey to wonderful high taste menu. “Reactivating what was once a textile and lingerie atelier, Porte 12 has been created in harmony within the fundamentals of its predecessors – e marvelous artistry works of one’s pair of hands and ceaseless interminable inspirations – merged in a blend of contemporary and old, creativity and simplicity.”
