In the framework of the «Parcours Saint-Germain» a major cultural event in the neighborhood of Saint-Germain des Près, Sans titre (2016) will be occupying the mythical hotel La Louisiane for two weeks in June.

La Louisiane is famous for being the Parisian home of many major artistic figures of the XXth century: American jazzmen (Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Lester Young, Chet Baker, Charlie Parker…) were gathering there to jam. Writers and directors as Ernest Hemingway, Henry Miller, Jean-Paul Sartre or Simone de Beauvoir, Louis Malle, Leos Carax, Quentin Tarantino were also regulars of the hotel. Moreover, generations of plastic artists used to stay in, or are still staying in La Louisiane : Nam June Paik, Lucian Freud or Cy Twombly until his last months.

Linked to the passion of the owner, Xavier Blanchot, pioneer of the French internet in the 90s, this «Parisian Chateau Marmont» became a meeting place for start-ups.

For this exhibition eight young international artists will be taking over three rooms of the hotel. Alongside the artworks, Paul Henry Bizon wrote three texts, the artists could get inspired from. The writer, author of La Louve, published recently by Gallimard, imagined three fictional characters inspired by the famous guests of La Louisiane : a writer, a musician and a internet entrepreneur. The artists selected by Sans titre (2016), Paloma Proudfoot, Marie Aly, Ieva Kraule, Agnes Scherer, Bea Bonafini, Camilla Steinum, Agata Indarden and Saelia Aparicio imagined pieces for this occasion, sometimes created in-situ, inspired by the characters invented by Paul-Henry Bizon. Also, outside of the hotel Sara Naim created a photographical fresco.

The three rooms will be on view from the 31st of May to the 16th of June, everyday from 12 pm to 8 pm, and by appointment on mornings and nights.
