When Dominique de Menil traveled, she often took with her this edition of the complete works of Baudelaire, over 1, 500 pages, marking in pencil such sharp observations as, "boredom is the result of a dreary lack of curiosity" #charlesbaudelaire #themenilcollection

A nice antidote to the gray day. #danflavin installation at #themenilcollection

This is an amazing installation shown in a most contemporary way. Collector, Francis Alys, started scouring flea markets in 1992 seeing varying reproductions of this same subject matter and is now sharing this 514 piece collection with the world. And once you get past the impacting series of repetition, you can appreciate each piece individually. The profiles are of the same fourth century Christian saint known as Fabiola; the mediums are mixed, the frames vary and the scale and hues compliment into an overall iconic presence that is quite honestly spiritual. However, there are several others in embroidery, red leafing, mustard green seeds, flaxseeds and beans are amongst the varying methods to achieve this show-stopping existence. It's a definite must-see, with time to spare, as it ends May 13, 2018.
