Wood and roses

The weather has been really crazy these past days in Paris. Last week I went for a walk in Palais Royal and it was quite nice and summery… until it rained again.

Palais Royal is quite the basic tourist attraction in Paris but since I live here I don’t go there that often. Well I should! It so peaceful and beautiful and now they have two exhibitions going on. One with roses and another with wooden sculptures.

The exhibition L’homme debout of  wooden sculptures were made of recycled materials by a Korean artist Chung Hyun. It’s still going on until the 12th of june.

The roses are presented in jars and they come from the national park of Saint-Cloud just outside of Paris. It started 19th May and it will end the 5th of June and there are 80 different variety of roses in the garden. So short lasting but beautiful!

Among the exhibitions there are french men playing petanque and older ladies walking their little dogs, this is also a must see if you are a tourist in Paris!

The historical frame is perfect for rough and minimalist sculptures and delicate roses. The Palais Royale itself is so impressive and there are so many shops and cafés to discover under the arcades. Next time!
