From "10 Clues to Unlock Paris"


10 Clues to Unlock Paris from MESSY NESSY - Cabinet of chic curiosities

BEYOND THE MIRROR at Clouste Gulbenkian Museum Portugal

"Beyond the Mirror, a title that deliberately alludes to the world of Alice Liddell, the heroine created by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), is a thematic exhibition, which takes the mirror as its main focus. The intention is to show the polysemic presence of this object in the iconography of European art, particularly within painting, but also in sculpture, books, photography and film."



Eduardo Luiz (Braga, 1932 – Paris, 1988). 
“Alice’s hand [La Main d’Alice]”, 1983



"Mirrors are particularly interesting objects since they have the ability to transport us to other dimensions, leading us into the realms of spirituality, dreams, or even nightmares. 

Artists employ mirrors for various reasons, as they can both reveal and disguise elements of the scenes that are represented. They offer infinite visual possibilities including, most obviously, that of accurately reflecting reality."

Alice of the world: wake up!




"Alice é um portal enigmágico, um mapa em movimento, um caminho inesgotável, um jardim de metamorflores e borboletras híbridas. Palavras inventadas, um convite ao despertar."

Alice dans la Maison de Contes


Un film de Dominique Monféry. 
Illustré par Rébecca Dautremer.


Plot

"The seven-year-old hero, Nathaniel, is not a confident reader. When his eccentric old aunt Eleanor dies, she leaves her house to his parents and her huge book collection to the young boy. Nathaniel discovers that the books shelter all the heroes found in children's literature. Among them are Alice in Wonderland, Puss in Boots, Pinocchio and Little Red Riding Hood and they are counting on him for protection: if they leave the library, they will disappear along with their stories forever. When his parents start selling off the books, Nathaniel is shrunk by the evil fairy Carabosse and must brave everything to save his miniature friends."
