THE DOGS ARE DEAD

I posted this photo on my instagram and immediately felt guilty – everyone thought they were real life dogs!! They are, only they’re dead and stuffed and posed real cutely, with a nice lil chick to boot. And I mean the actual chick, not just me hehehe. This is the work of Maurizio Cattelan at Monnaie de Paris, a building along the Quai de Conti, where I idiotically walked past a few months prior and shook my head at the thought of a museum dedicated to money…

I couldn’t figure out if this horse was real or not – his legs were comically long, and I, a professional jockey, would deffo know this, but it turns out he was once Tiramisu, a world star racehorse. But wait! I was played by Cattelan yet again! His legs were purposely elongated to give the impression that gravity and time had stretched them, which is exactly what I had thought had happened in a stupid aha! moment. He really is a jokester, that one <3

I think my favorite part of all of this is how nonchalantly people were walking about, acting as if there wasn’t a dead horse hanging on the wall. Like no one really paid a huge amount of attention to the dogs, but they did to all the human sculptures, which were pretty lol, but omg there actually were dead horses and dogs and birds about!!! Is taxidermy not as interesting a subject as I think it is? Who where these horses; did he even them for a reason or is it just what he could get; what happens to them when they’re done being shown? How sad if they just go in a box or something. Also, where the heck is this horse’s head? So many questions I could probably Google right now smh, but I won’t. Bye xox

Foundation Louis Vuitton

Finally got around to visiting the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris during my second trip this year. It’s crazy, but the last time I was in Paris was the summer before I started college, and if you told me that the next time I’d visit I would be living in London (with a fucking boyfriend no less), I’d be like nahhhhh. But I digress.

Daniel Buren coloured the glass “sails” of the Foundation Louis Vuitton and I hate to break it to a lot of people probably, but I really did not like how it looked from the outside. Like it just wasn’t very nice, and maybe it was because the clouds were dark and moody that it kind of reminded me of a massive clown building, but it would have been 100% more appealing from the outside if it was in its regular plain glass state. I will say, however, from the inside it was like a fucking playground, especially as pink is ?

I just want to point out that just cus I wear a suit now doesn’t mean I’m a boring corporate gal, I’m still fun and flirty xoxo. I also don’t understand what Louis Vuitton has to do with this as there was 100% no fashion related stuff inside. I could easily look it up but I kind of like keeping a little mystery in my life ;~P
