Walking Into this Paris Gallery is Like Entering a Time Capsule

cercle de la horlaFriends of mine in Paris have built this unique project: Cercle de La Horla, an art gallery that offers its visitors a moment outside of reality. The space is in a beautiful old print shop on Rue du Vertbois in Paris, and most of the artists (including the acclaimed Pierre Huygues) are under 30 years old. Several times a week they organize philosophical talks, seated dinners, clarinet or cello concerts, poetry readings…

Walking into the gallery is like entering a time capsule, to a time where cell phones and cameras don’t exist and where things are experienced in the moment, for intimate contemplation and the pure sake of art.
