rejointoiement

from messy working garage to pristine art factory, this slimmed down solo citroen by Gabriel Orozco, our part-time neighbour in Paris, has pride of place on an upper level of the Centre Pompidou...
in the end is it just a lovely old french car cut in half and re-served as a clever sculptural counterpoint to over-slick showrooms of over-sleek new models promising yet more roomy joy-rides...
[or looking backwards in my rétroviseur, I may be slightly regretful for the missing middle...]

Hey Gina, that is really wild... what a nice job was done slicing and dicing !

And I absolutely love your new header photo, that is fantastic !

Thanks so much, Owen, for your kind comments and your always enthusiastic interest!
[I couldn't decide on a new header image so have been trying out different ones, but I'm happy you like this one...I think it is quite symbolic of the streets of Paris!!]

Yes, not bad at all! I had the pleasure of driving the wider version during a couple of years (inheritied from my dad)!
