The theme proposed by eL Seed for this collaboration with the Royal Monceau is the love he has for Paris and its history. The artist wants to make a real declaration of love to the city.
In 2014, eL Seed created a sculpture he called “Declaration”, in which he took a love letter from a husband to his wife and makes it his own. The calligraphy of this first sculptural work symbolised a declaration of love from the artist to the Arabic letter.
This work was destroyed after it was exhibited in Dubai, in accordance with the artist’s wishes. Like a fleeting first love, the declaration work then disappears.
He wanted to revive ‘Declaration’ and for it to take the form of a declaration of love to Paris, a city that is so dear to the artist and where he was born. eL Seed wants to surprise visitors and offer them a real hymn to love
