La Plage consists of a one-metre deep and five-metres long window transformed into an experimental art space located in the middle of boulevard Saint Martin in Paris
This truncated white cube is currently presenting a solo exhibition by JACOPO MILIANI, titled Burning Desire. The installation includes two sprayed-on-the-wall sentences that embrace a print featuring a lily flower superimposed over a portrait of voguer DERRICK MAGNIFIQUE as well as three silver fitness balls.
Dot Dot Dot became boing boing boing
A group of suspended objects.
Three spheres rolling in the air, they look motionless.
A ball is always still in between the fall and the bounce.
Throwing a Ball…will many people come?
I am looking
You are looking
Gaze on me
My head is upside down
My back lies on a Pilates balloon
This position will affect my thinking
Your hands move like lilies
Instinctive feelings are written on a wall in black spray
Thinking they will last forever but they go, like in a Lana del Rey song.
