MUSÉE NATIONAL EUGÈNE DELACROIX
In the continuity of the exhibition of outdoor works in the Tuileries Garden, the Musée Eugène Delacroix opens to FIAC visitors, in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre. Situated in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Eugène Delacroix Museum is an unexpected haven of peace, niched between courtyard and garden. Designed by the painter himself, the studio was transformed into a museum through the initiative of Maurice Denis and other major painters of the 1920s.
It is a site dedicated to artistic creation.
Throughout FIAC week, the students of the Ecole du Louvre (School of the Louvre) will present the works.
Address: 6, rue de Furstenberg, 75006 Paris
Free access upon presentation of your FIAC ticket.

At first, Katinka Bock’s work seems to be rooted in a movement initiated by arte povera. The German artist has a fondness for modest, natural materials - terracotta, wood, plaster, ceramic, leather, fabric, clay, or more recently, bronze - which she often, delicately and simply, combines with found, existing objects: a stone, ladder, rope, table, steel ring or football.
Her sculptures and installations explore temporality and space, mining the territories of history and geography, to deal with questions of language, common space and sharing. Proportion is a vital element of the work, found in suspension or the equilibrium of a mobile. The materials Katinka Bock uses convey a meaning beyond their physical form. She arranges them in a way which incites immediate, profound reactions before any consideration is given to the object itself.
