A french creator, OLYMPIA LE TAN, vintage books covers hand sewn, and a golden idea to unlock the purses 'secrets.
"STILL ILL", a collection of theatrical accessories staged in the very serious Academy of Medecine history's front windows.
Ointments' or medecine cans transformed into small purses, customised emergency suitcases, book boxes embroidered with cult titles: Junkie from William Burroughs, Death in Venice by Thomas Mann, Le Malade Imaginaire by Molière, La Peste by Albert Camus, Wuthering Heights by'Emily Bronté, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by RL.Stevenson,...
Olympia Le Tan gives us the opportunity in a very poetical way to carryeverywhere with us our fears, our old demons, and also mystical writings, hallucinogenic trips, fantasy worlds and also all of our border line pathological short comings.
