La Défense is a business district in the suburbs just around Paris. It is sometimes compared to the Parisian New York because of its skyscrapers. Needless to say the skyscrapers are way smaller and it barely resembles New York, but if you’ve never seen the place, it gives you an idea: this is a place where people work, so rather serious.
Since there are many open spaces at the center of the business district, there is, from time to time, one or two art exhibition(s). I still think that this one was a bit unexpected for the place though. The pictures were taken in March 2010.
