The photographic intallation "Les petites merveilles de Paris" was shown at Le Pavé d'Orsay in Paris, June 2008. The presentation of these works is very important and dependent on the exhibition space.

The motives were found in the city and surroundings of Paris. The moss and lichen were chosen, photographed, retouched, trimmed, enlarged and printed with the specific white that most resembles the wall color of this specific space. Finally they where glued with care directly unto the walls. (above you can see the invitation card)
