MERCI X LOLA JAMES HARPER
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.
