Dites-Le avec Dalí - Text & Images by Aisling Connell
Dear Shaded Viewers,
13 rue des Frigos in Paris' 13th district has a remarkable likeness to the infamous Kunsthaus Tacheles in Berlin, that is, until you arrive on the third floor. The baroque style loft is worlds apart from the graffiti covered exterior and proved the perfect location for Dites-le avec Dalí this evening. Paolo worked with Federico Fellini for a while and his loft shows the Fellini film atmosphere.
The oppulent surroundings were lit by candlelight and the atmosphere was slightly surreal. The INA have launched an online archive of Dalí audio-visual footage and the event was celebrating this. You can browse through the archive here: http://ditesle.ina.fr/dali/
