The latest project by nomadic Sans Titre (2016) pitches up in the legendary artists’ hotel.

For the first two weeks of June, three rooms of hotel La Louisiane, based in the heart of Saint-Germain des Près, are being taken over by contemporary art curator Marie Madec, creator of nomadic project space Sans Titre (2016) as part of Le Parcours Saint-Germain. ‘It’s really a special place’ she tells me.

Works inspired by writer Paul-Henry Bizon from Marie Aly, Saelia Aparicio, Bea Bonafini, Agata Ingarden, Ieva Kraule, Paloma Proudfoot, Agnes Scherer and Camilla Steinum will be on view, as well as performances and readings from Paloma Proudfoot, Bea Bonafini and Sara Naim.

The hotel is often described as mythical due to its history of hosting artistic and cultural giants including Albert Camus, Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre, Cy Twombly and Lucian Freud. Retaining its spirit (no real refurbishment has been done since the ’60s) and its price point (rooms are relatively cheap) La Louisiane forms the latest in a line of places in which Sans Titre (2016) has blurred the boundaries with contemporary artistic interventions that reflect, adapt and challenge their temporary environment.

‘Chambre 10’ at La Hotel Louisiane (60 rue de Seine 75006 Paris – France) will be on view 31st May until 15th June 2018 from 12pm – 8pm and by appointment outside these hours.

You can find Sans Titre (2016) here and follow here!
