yellow, green, pink, red, blue, orange… But what happens? A few steps from Madeleine and at the heart of the City, paved with the so-called Berryer, the refined Village Royal is adorned multiple colors. Suspended in front of the eyes of passers-by marvelled, hands outstretched and smartphones headed for the sky, 800, umbrellas, decorate and brighten up the place. At their feet, the frail female bodies carved by the belgian artist Dirk De Keyzer will reveal both sides of the walkway. The seal of the ancient buildings with the modernism of contemporary art. The passage of history dating from 1746, where stood the original market’aguesseau, becomes pop.

the origin of the project is the jovial creative Portuguese Patricia Cunha, who lavished his umbrella in the cities to brighten the day of onlookers and attract them to places unknown. For this installation, the artist collective Sextafeira Produçoes claims to be inspired by Mary Poppins and her legendary means of transport and driving.
