Vive la France and “la joie de vivre”! Let’s speak French today, talking about Mademoiselle Maurice who we already met here! Paying homage to the ever-changing moon that inhabits the skies above Earth, she just finished an outstanding piece of art called LUNAR CYCLE. Her signature origami birds now cover the area of 2000 square meters, composing the largest urban mural ever made in the French capital.
Realized in close collaboration with Mathgoth Gallery, the piece makes a singular work of public art that will embellish the town for a certain period of time.
Each origami is painted after folding using a solution deemed “Maurigami” by Mademoiselle Maurice, making the pieces nearly indestructible. The piece took three weeks to complete, 500 liters of black paint, 15.000 origamis and 2.000 maurigamis.
