to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

past + present at Viaduc des Arts

The 'Viaduc des Arts' in Paris is a nice location to explore.  On top of the viaduct the railway tracks made place for a long green public park called 'Promenade Plantée' or 'Coulée Verte'.  The arcades underneath are turned into arts & crafts workshops where about 50 artisans in different disciplines are working in nice vaulted airy rooms.

One of these can be rented by the week for exhibitions or pop-up stores.  At the time we visited Paris Caroline of Past + Present turned the space into a great shop with gorgeous vintage finds.

A few pieces of her collection can be adapted to other dimensions.

The next sale from Past + Present at the Viaduc des Arts will be from May 30 until June 5 - 2011
Visit Caroline's blog for more information.
