T he Pavillon des Arts et du Design took place under a gigantic tent installed in the Tuileries Gardens. About a hundred exhibitors were selected by the committee which consisted of thirty professionals whose expertise and standards are a yardstick of the measure of quality.
Olivier Carreras, presenter and host (and who has been off-scene for a long time) has discovered, or re-discovered, several gallery owners, to note Yves Gastou (whose clients include Madonna, Mick Jagger, etc.) Pascal Cuisinier, and many others. The prize for originality in this 13th Pavilllon must surely be awarded to the artist Alain Godon. This artist, whose sentimental home is Le Touquet Paris-Plage, loves to observe, listen and relate the tiny incidents and more important moments of our lives. He shows us a mirror that reflects our daily lives and the world that surrounds us in paintings that are both realistic and optimistic in tone.
