A BLOODY HOTEL AT THE SHINING OPENING

By Crash

Yesterday night was the opening The Shining exhibition at the hotel La Louisiane. Curated by Anaid Demir and supported by us, it took the visitor through a frightening voyage in the atypical Parisian hotel situated in the heart of the Saint-Germain-des-prés area. Photography by Etienne Daho, dreamy prints by filmmaker Bertrand Mandico, a bloody piece by Adel Abdessemed and much more were scattered around the small dusty rooms of La Louisiane. The visitor had to make his way through the exhibition’s cramped corridors, walking on the floor covered with a carpet inspired by the one in the Hotel Overlook. On the third floor, a short film by Frank Perrin was shown in a dimly-lit room. Inspired by Italian giallo movies and slashers, the video pictured models dressed in Gucci, moving through a prism of blue and pink colored lights. A moment of hallucination and retro horror – a tribute to the cult movie Shining by Stanley Kubrick.

Guests included Etienne Daho himself, here to present his photographs, Bertrand Mandico and Elina Löwensohn, Michèle Lamy, Donatien Grau, Patricia Marshall, Laurent Godin, Gianni Motti, Jean-Luc Verna, Pacôme Thiellement and more! Discover the photos of the night below.

The exhibition The Shining at La Louisiane runs through November 16th.
