PALAIS DE TOKIO, PARIS – 2001
During my period of residence in Paris, 18 years ago I was sadly surprised at the number of people who slept on the sidewalks at night. Today nobody is surprised över the homless number in the world. My reaction then was to take my camera and ask visitors to the Palais de Tokyo a center of contemporary artists, if they agreed to lie on the restaurant floor, very decorative on the other hand , to experience in their own bodies the lack of protection that some peoples suffers daily. Most of the 25-30 respondents accept. Everyone was upset by the experience.
