Whether in Paris or in Manila, the French aren’t afraid to talk about sexuality.
When I was in the French capital, I saw depictions of nudity in places frequented by tourists.
I’d say that all of them were artistic.
The French are really good at expressing themselves through the arts.
I suppose that’s possible if you don’t let inhibitions shackle your creativity.
The Philippine capital
It features works of sculptors Agnes Arellano and Duddley Diaz and painter Fernando Modesto.
Their works reminded me of the depictions of nudity that I’d seen in Paris.
The Total Gallery of Alliance Francaise de Manille, where the works are presently displayed, seemed like a miniature Paris to me – everywhere I looked there were fine examples of artistic self-expression and French-speaking people.
More about the works tomorrow.
