Elephant Paname

A new museum opened in Paris recently, the Elephant Paname. The building is a mansion built in the time of Napoleon III by Russia's ambassador to France.  It has been painstakingly refurbished and features beautiful exposed plaster work reminiscent of a past era and a faceted Corten Steel lift, making it's way up the building.  I'm still not sure if it was too clunky an intervention, but I like it anyway!

The exhibition we went to see there was all about Jean Marais, actor, sculptor, ceramicist... And lover of Jean Cocteau . A good place to practice my French as there was no English! Well worth the visit.
