photo 2The 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)

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.”
