25 Jul


Meet the Artists

“Meet the Artists” allows the arts ambassadors to talk to different local artists face to face to appreciate the artists’ artwork and learn their interesting stories behind.

 “Paris Rétro by Maron Bouillie”
Taking a sensory stroll through the Historic Parisian Storefronts 

Have you ever imagined window shopping through the streets of Paris without traveling on a plane or spending a penny? Maron Bouillie creates a mini Paris and brings the historic and beautiful Parisian sidewalk in Hong Kong. Ambassadors will be led by her to discover the sensory Paris and the classic Parisian pedestrian lifestyle. 
Through her camera lens, Maron records the street lives of Paris. This exhibition transformed eleven of her historic Parisian store fronts in the “Paris Rétro” series into life-sized installations, displaying a 6-meter tall Eiffel Tower replica, string instruments repair shop, haberdashery and chocolatier. Earlier in May, Maron visited Hong Kong and documented her journey Hong Kong with a series of photographs from old shops, cultural heritage to street sight.
It is a golden chance to meet a French artist, you must not miss it!
