#JardessinDuLuxe is an experimental and limited edition of a series of drawings inspired by observations of people using chairs in Jardin du Luxembourg. It was inspired by a chapter that Karin wrote in her thesis “Chance Encounters | a Gesture, an Object, a Décor.”

The series observes and chronicles contemporary life in Jardin du Luxembourg. To capture the human characteristics of the everyday, the “infraordinary” in these public gardens like in Georges Perec’s book An attempt at exhausting a place in Paris. To capture as he puts it “what happens when nothing happens.” 

The experimental editions were and will be spread at random moments in Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris. In the convivial spirit of the garden, visitors can find the editions for free in situ on chairs and benches across the garden.
