From January 18 to February 18, 2024, MERCI creates the "PACIFIQUE" exhibition with LOLA JAMES HARPER and its Founder Rami Mekdachi.

Lola James Harper is renowned for its unique collection of candles, perfumes, and photographs of iconic places, and for its gentle, joyful, and sunny philosophy that invites us to travel and dream.

The "PACIFIQUE" installation under the dome of 111 Boulevard Beaumarchais is a joyful and inspiring stroll through music, fragrances, images, and this energy directly imported from the Pacific coast. A ray of sunshine in the midst of Parisian winter. "PACIFIQUE", a title, a place, a state of mind, a word that evokes peace, gentleness, and a touch of magic.

The exhibition is divided into six themes, echoing the fragrances and photographs of iconic places by Lola James Harper, offering several exclusive previews. The grand wall of the dome will present 50 exclusive prints by Rami and Lili Mekdachi, immersing visitors in their bright universe, accompanied by projections of excerpts from the award-winning film 'WITH' by Rami Mekdachi, which takes us on an immersive road trip…

MERCI will also exclusively present ‘HOOPTIME’, the latest film by Rami and Noé Mekdachi. This film explores the little miracles and wisdom transmitted by street basketball. Currently touring international festivals, before its public release scheduled for the end of 2024.

Join us at MERCI to discover ‘PACIFIQUE’, a poetic and joyful experience with LOLA JAMES HARPER, Rami Mekdachi, and his family.

Private opening evening on Wednesday, January 18 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
- Screenings and previews in February, by reservation / limited places for the films WITH and HOOPTIME.

“I am delighted to share with you an adventure that is close to my heart. In collaboration with Arthur Gerbi, artistic director of Merci, we designed 'PACIFIQUE', a celebration of the American West Coast, right here in the heart of Paris. It is our shared love for this region, rich in energy and creativity, that inspired us to create this unique event at MERCI in January and February 2024. Imagine an installation under the glass roof of MERCI, where 50 silver prints of our road trips on the Pacific coast will be exhibited for the first time. We will also include an eclectic selection of music, videos and perfumes evoking iconic places in this fascinating region. Exclusive previews will be available, including the Lola James Harper 'The Venice Beach Basketball Courts' candle, the 'HOOPTIME' photo-book which accompanies my new film, and a brand new room fragrance Merci / Lola James Harper. Our intention? Create a joyful and inspiring stroll, through music, perfumes, images and this energy directly imported from the Pacific coast...
a ray of sunny sunshine in the middle of Parisian winter. The PACIFIQUE exhibition is not just a title, it is a state of mind, a word that evokes peace, gentleness and a touch of magic. An immersive experience where every detail is an ode to the magnificent Pacific coast. »
