Saint-Exupéry Connection

Newer Older

We are at the Au Savignon, collaging, talking and drinking. Alex brought with him two tattered copies of Le Petit Prince, one of which I have vandalised for my purposes. My contribution consisted of highly decomposed copy of X-Men comic book. I found between Alex’s scraps a calling card for a bar in Paris called HUB (you can see part of it stuck in my collage in progress). This place turned out to be run by his friend, an ex-pilot, some years ago. The counter serving the drinks was made of an authentic aeroplane wing!

The Little Prince book will be our next joint project for the The Library group. We agreed to make collage each, using our identical (I took one copy with me back to London), cloth bound, covers of the book – kind of synchronicity at play.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called arty old fARTS, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    That looks more like Rio than Paris.. and the old Dakota wing sounds like my type of furniture!!!

    Collage jam session? This is a wonderful idea! This video shows how it could be made into an enthralling TV show, sort of like Tony Hart meets Duchamp.

    thanks people!

    collage jam session I did once already. it was last year in Mexico City. I still didn't see the final fruits of that. My artistic collaborator promised to finish them within couple of days 9 months ago. Knowing her, it means they are on their way to me since a week ago or I may never see them again, hehe... c'est la vie.
