Hey mes petits dreamers,

Today I discovered Batman in Paris.

Okay, so I’m not the biggest Batman fan, but that’s not the point.  I still appreciate a man in a cape.

“Batman, under the mask and cape” is the dreamy name of this unique exhibition located at House Muller (6 rue Muller) in Montmartre.  It celebrates the June 23 release of the latest version of Batman Arkham – a famous action video game based on the DC Comics superhero.  The exhibition highlights thirty different interpretations of Batman costumes from the game, all designed by a diverse range of very French artists: from well-known street artist M. Chat, urban and stencil artist C215, the great pastry chef Guillaume Sanchez, and floral designer Marianne Guedin (which was my personal fav).

Walking up five levels of this tight terrace house, I stepped lightly around each display, trying not to knock over any Batmans or slip on the blanket of white feathers that covered the entire floor – also not good for my black pants, but it’s all in the name of art.

After an hour or so of scratching up on my non-existent Batman comic knowledge, I walked out feeling about 5% cooler – a feeling that was short-lived, as someone in the street then pointed out that I had white feathers stuck on my bum.  Awesome.

Still getting lost in the right direction.

Bisous!
