    What an incredible show with fantastic works! FIAC looks like the king of all art expos. I want that Gorilla now, and perhaps a few of those chairs.

    And yes, that library is amazing.

    I wish I could go there and look at everything.

    I really liked that old lady in the blue dress haha

    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
