Here at the Tourist in Paris we like daring artists very much! This is why we give you Krijn de Koning, a Dutch artist, for a unique exhibition in one of the most amazing design cultural centre/museum in Paris, the CentQuatre (or 104, literally “One Hundred and four”). What is this place? Located in North Paris (it’s a safe area during the day), it’s a unique place devoted to artistic innovation.

“Color has the capacity to influence the perception of the reality that is surrounding us”, Krijn de Koning

Why is de Koning exhibition worth seeing? Don’t expect a huge and long exhibition but this colorful labyrinth is worth seeing. De Koning wants you to experience the surroundings of a work of art in a new way. The artwork is therefore always related to the space and invites you to interact with it. De Koning makes architectural and labyrinthine structures that impinge on their environment, with the use of bold colors contrasting with their surroundings but at the same time forging a connection with them.

Funny story: The artist, incognito, was taking pictures of his own exhibition during the first few days, among the visitors. It’s only when we left and saw a recent picture of de Koning that we realized that we were in it together. Brilliant.

When? From January 10 to April 5, 2015. Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 2pm to 6:30pm.

Book your ticket right here. Check out the Facebook event for the latest updates.

A drink after your visit? The museum’s café/restaurant is a must-do: “Le Café Caché” (“the hidden cafe”).
