At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Nantes gets measured up.

Lilian Bourgeat strives to transcend the ordinary, both literally and figuratively. She focuses on making oversized versions of objects from everyday life while retaining their original appearance. In gigantic size, they are freed from banality, acquiring an extraordinary, almost iconic status.

A tool which is indispensable to architects, urban planners, builders and many other tradespeople besides, the tape measure is also an important object for Lilian Bourgeat who carries one everywhere with her. An exact but gigantic copy of her own tape measure, this one is presented in the courtyard of the headquarters of Aethica, a property building company.
Her work is like a monument dedicated to the simplicity of  this tool, which, banal though it is, helps makes the ideas in our imagination come to life.
