‘Second Floor’, The private apartment of Mademoiselle Chanel, 12th September – 4th October
Sam Taylor-Johnson’s photographic exhibition ‘Second Floor’, will feature a series of 34 photographs capturing the private rooms of Mademoiselle Chanel at 31 Rue Cambon in Paris.
Starting from the hallowed mirrored staircase leading up to the apartment, the Turner Prize nominee has captured this intimate world, artfully immortalizing objects and furniture that were so treasured by Mademoiselle Chanel. The photographs illustrate the numbers, patterns, colours and emblematic animals that are synonymous with Mademoiselle Chanel’s creative vocabulary.
