to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Bodys Isek Kingelez at Oiron

I'm working on new projects for an upcoming art tour I will talk about very soon.
The theme of the tour is fragility, subtheme on our location is urbanisation.  The difficult and fragile balance between cities and rural countryside.

I'm finding great inspiration in this...
my apologies for the very bad pictures shot in a tiny and dark servants' room in the grand Oiron Castle

the narrow corridor to the servants' quarters

Bodys Isek Kingelez (DRC) - Allemagne à l'An 2000 (Germany in the year 2000) - 1988

Bodys Isek Kingelez - Paris Nouvelle - 1989

Bodys Isek Kingelez - Italie - 1989

The artist builds models of fantastic cities in cardboard.  Fun and playful, I'd love to be able to wander through his joyful universe.
