Rue Mouffetarde

"In my room, number 13 on the fourth floor of the Hotel Carcassonne at 24 Rue Mouffetard … is a table Vera painted blue one day to surprise me. I wanted to see what the objects on half of [it] … could suggest to me or spontaneously awaken in me while describing them; like Sherlock Holmes, who could solve a crime from a single object; or like historians who … reconstitute an entire epoch out of the most famous fixation in history, Pompeii." Daniel Spoerri, Topographie Anécdotée* du Hasard
