MOTION FACTORY AT THE GAITE LYRIQUE

Open to the public from today, the new show at the Gaité Lyrique takes you behind the scenes of “tactile” animated filmaking, halfway been the hand-made and the digital avant-garde. Curator Yves Geleyn presents the new generation of animators – including  Mikey Please, Elliot Dear, Johnny Kelly or Conor Finnegan – who use their imaginations to reinvent and adapt the DIY tradition of tactile animation to contemporary tools. Paris-based design studio 5.5 has conceived the scenography as a factory composed of a series of colourful studios including a projection room where you can watch shorts, a stop-motion video game, as well as a collaborative film set, the Atelier KinoFactory.
>Until 10 Aug. >2-8pm; Tue 2-10pm; Sun 2-7pm. Closed Mon. >7.50€/ 5.50€. >3 bis rue Papin, 3rd. www.gaite-lyrique.net/

LA TRESORERIE

This new homeware bazaar with an elegant Scandinavian vibe is located inside a former public revenue office (hence the name) just across the road from Le Coq bar, near Place de la République. The XXL space is filled with light beaming in from the glass roof and displays a wonderfully curated and fairly priced selection of functional pieces from European brands, covering everything from Danish furniture, environmentally friendly paint, crockery, enamelware and ovenware, to rattan rugbeaters and brushes for cleaning mushrooms. Like Merci, they have a house textiles label, featuring quality monochrome towels, tablecloths and other linen. Every product is fully labelled with its brand and country of origin, and the shop is committed to materials with low environmental impact. The on-site Café Smörgas offers a short organic Swedish salad and sandwich menu for breakfast and lunch, plus Belleville coffee.
> 11am-7pm. Closed Sun. >11 rue du Château d’Eau, 10th. latresorerie.fr/

PIERRE & GILLES AT GALERIE TEMPLON

For their first exhibition at Galerie Daniel Templon, the masters of camp and kitsch Pierre & Gilles unveil a series of previously unseen works on the theme of the hero. The exhibition features a gallery of portraits, from heroic figures of antique mythology such as Achilles and Prometheus to superheroes of popular culture and fiction. We also encounter a number of contemporary heroes, such as a young rebel from the Arab Spring and a happy couple, sporting the artists’ features, celebrating a same-sex marriage. These hand-painted photographs are peopled by their friends and family, anonymous and famous (including Zahia Dehar, Arielle Dombasle, Isabelle Huppert and Marc Jacobs), who appear in sophisticated life-size sets the artists build in their studio. Coinciding with the exhibition, Le Mobilier National is presenting a carte blanche by Pierre & Gilles iincluding a painting inspired by Marie-Antoinette’s furniture and starring Zahia Dehar (until 27 Sep).
>Until Sat 31 May. 10am-7pm. Closed Sun. >Galerie Templon, 30 rue Beaubourg, 3rd. www.danieltemplon.com/
