Nuit Blanche 2010, Monnaie de Paris Hotel, Paris, France [October 2, 2010]

" Each one of us and everyone of us is then like a sign of recognition, one half of a coin (...) and each one is looking for the other half of his coin." Plato, The banquet.

Within Jean Prouvé’s “Maison Nomade”, installed in the cour d’honneur of the Monnaie de Paris, quaintly stylish men and women are almost motionless, lost in thought, solitary and inaccessible. Upon crossing the threshold of this house, alone but visible to all, the spectator is invited to experience either a female or male version of seduction that has been decided beforehand by a coin toss. The spectator can gamble, then enter this glass architecture, or choose the position of watcher and then observe those who have chosen to leave everything to luck, in the hope of brushing up against their desires.
