Once upon a time

Parcours Saint-Germain – Paris

Juin 2008

“Once upon a time …” proposes to be inspired by popular tales and legends, which constitute a persistent and universal cultural background and which irrigate by their figures and their themes many traditional and modern forms of expression.The idea is to highlight the influence that the theme of tales exerts on the human imagination, its aesthetic, cultural and universal values, by giving carte blanche to artists and writers to regenerate this imagination or become actors in their own tale. More than a subject of illustration, this journey into the wonderful world of fairy tales aims to reinterpret through crossed looks, the stories of yesteryear or to create new ones, from Sleeping Beauty, to Cinderella, via Peau d’Ane or Barbe-Bleue.
