Press release

On the occasion of the Nocturne d'Art Miromesnil, we are inviting you to break dishes in the 'Dish Breaker II' by Pierre Marie Lejeune' - a new version of sculpture-performance to which Niki de Saint Phalle and Mario Botta participated nearly 15 years ago. A barbaric and civilized act at the same time. A call to good fortune.

'We inaugurated the "Dish Breaker" with Niki and Mario in August 1997 in Al Cajon in California. The rage to break takes us over... I then offered it to Niki who loved breaking dishes. Every day she would send someone to the Salvation Army to buy some more.'

On Thursady October 13th 2011, 21 galerie des rues de Penthièvre, Miromesnil and of the avenue de Messine, open their doors from 6pm to 10pm.
