Paname Sans Dessus, Dessous !

Paris, Paname, la ville lumière souvent décrite comme la plus belle du monde déploie de part et d'autre de son fleuve son architecture grandiloquente et sa culture, passée et présente.

Mais ce que beaucoup ignorent, c’est que ses ponts, ses immeubles en pierre de taille, ses sculptures et ses fontaines, qui s’érigent tels les trophées d'une histoire turbulente et foisonnante, sont issus de ses entrailles, de ses carrières souterraines.

Longtemps perçus comme lieux de tous les fantasmes, de toutes les mythologies, ces souterrains laissés à l'abandon par une industrie éteinte à l'aube du XXe siècle ne « servent » plus aujourd’hui, mais « abritent » une étrange faune cavernicole méta urbaine.

Ce livre vous propose de descendre avec cette engeance dans les entrailles de Paname. Du dessus au dessous, sans le dessus... ou comment évoluer dans ce labyrinthe psychédélique et sauvage,ou comment en sortir, pour mieux y retourner...

Sexe, drogues et catacombes, ou l'improbable voyage au ventre du monstre urbain parisien en compagnie de sa progéniture dissidente.

Découvrez quelques tranches des vies impalpables de ceux que la société n'a su divertir assez, n'a su accueillir à sa surface.

Partez à la rencontre des arts perpétués dans le sous-sol de la ville, melting-pot culturel des courants alternatifs et tatouage d'amour gravé à même les entrailles de la cité par ses propres enfants sauvageons.

Vivez à travers cet ouvrage quelques moments du bonheur intense, de la joie violente, de la fête brutale et somatique célébrée au coeur même de la première pierre.

Voici Paname sans dessus, dessous... Bestiaire de la faune des sous-sols de la capitale, petit catalogue du plus vaste musée des arts urbains alternatifs, puits et portes ouvertes sur la perception d'un monde parallèle, caché, enfoui, juste sous vos pieds, juste sous vos maisons, se gardant bien des acquis du dessus pour continuer à vivre dessous...

Descendez, descendez, descendez...

Paname Sans Dessus, Dessous !

Paris, familiarly called “Paname”, is often described as the world's most beautiful city, but it hides behind its majestic architecture and history, the secret part of its genesis, how it was build in surface by taking it's stone under it's own ground in the ancient underground stone quarries, so-called catacombs.
Believed during a long time as a set and setting for all fantasies and myths, these underground quarries were deserted because of decadent industry. Abandoned in the beginning of 20th century; nowadays it has become the headquarters of a strange hollow urban wildlife.
This book invites you to go down with “natives” in the heart of Paname city: From upside to downside, leaving the upper-city spirit…upside... To find your way in the wild and psychedelic labyrinth and then how to leave it to get back to it better.
Sex, drugs and catacombs, or the unlikely journey in the urban monster’s stomach, guided trough by its dissident progenitor.
Share some abstract life parts from people that society has not been able to entertain or welcome in the real upper-world.
Find out the Art perpetuated in the city’s underground: Cultural melting pot from alternative trends and “messages of love” tattooed by its own wild children, at the heart of the first stone.
Through this work, live some moments of an intense happiness, the violently-happy delight from the savage celebration in the centre of the former stone.
This is Paname sans dessus, dessous !… Anthology of the underground wildlife from the French capital and a little catalogue of the biggest urban alternative Art museum, opening the doors of perception on an unofficial world, out of sight, buried, just under your feet, just under your houses… where organising life below means banning any above life-concepts and politics.

Get down, get down, get down....

Colors Zoo, this Spanish indy book company is known for its graffiti books such as "Welcome to Colors zoo" or "Hors du temps - Timeless".

"Mr Kern - Le cendart" was a fist step into something different. It's more an illustration/comic book than the usual graffiti picture book. Even if there are a few graffiti pictures in Mr Kern's book.

This is a new attempt to publish something a bit unexpected from Colors Zoo: A book about the ancient building rock quarries found underneath the city of Paris (commonly known as the "catacombs").

After a long and interesting introduction about catacomb history and Martha Cooper's experience in Paris underground. The book is mainly about pictures. The authors goal is not to explain or analyse the fascination for catacombs, but to share through pictures atmospheres and life fragments of catacomb microcosm: party pictures, art in the catacombs (not only painting but also sculptures), graffiti & tags (catacombs are never buffed so it is possible to see tags & graffiti from the early 80's).

This heavy books doesn't answer to all your questions about Paris catacombs, and it is not its aim. It is a long & fantastic travel under Paris.

This book is definitively the right one to know a bit more about the gigantic underground Paris maze.
