Apart from the abandoned club and the famous restaurant it is also the 6 floors of the haussmanian, typically Parisian, building that has been offered to the artists’ creativity.

'The public baths were for me an opportunity to experience what I wanted to try for a long time, a total IMMERSION. A different relationship to time has allowed me to make this piece.' --LeMoDuLeDeZeeR --
LES BAINS started as a secret artist residency.
SAMBRE made a piece over two floors, using the site's floors and recreating a new space in ama mazing installation.
