Sans titre (2016) is pleased to present their first show in an hotel, the mythical hotel La Louisiane.

La Louisiane is famous for being the Parisian home of many major artistic figures of the XXth century: American jazzmen (Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Lester Young, Chet Baker, Charlie Parker…) were gathering there to jam. Writers and directors as Ernest Hemingway, Henry Miller, Jean-­‐Paul Sartre or Simone de Beauvoir, Louis Malle, Leos Carax, Quentin Tarantino were also regulars of the hotel. Moreover, generations of plastic artists used to stay in, or are still staying in La Louisiane: Nam June Paik, Lucian Freud or Cy Twombly until his last months.

Linked to the passion of the owner, Xavier Blanchot, pioneer of the French Internet in the 90s, this «Parisian Chateau Marmont» became a meeting place for start-­‐ups. For this exhibition eight young international artists will be taking over three rooms of the hotel. Alongside the artworks, Paul Henry Bizon wrote three texts, the artists could get inspired from. The writer, author of La Louve, published recently by Gallimard, imagined three fictional characters inspired by the famous guests of La Louisiane: a writer, a musician and a internet entrepreneur.

The artists selected by Sans titre (2016), Paloma Proudfoot, Marie Aly, Ieva Kraule, Agnes Scherer, Bea Bonafini, Camilla Steinum, Agata Indarden and Saelia Aparicio imagined pieces for this occasion, sometimes created in-­‐situ, inspired by the characters invented by Paul-­‐Henry Bizon.
