An fitting of 85 plaster hanged rabbits and one sitting on the table, a literal representation of the French expression “poser un lapin” was in Arnaud Lefebvre’s gallery.
Everyone was invited at Galerie Arnaud Lefebvre by Francine Flandrin. Arriving at the gallery, they saw a hunter and a rabbit, but no “Francine” around. A figurative sense of “poser un lapin”.

But ! If they arrived directly at

An other map indicated them the place to join, to
know why they were having rabbit terrine ?!!

Everyone really appreciated the terrine, or was it an irresistible attraction towards her golden jumbo lashes stuck on her star’s glasses ??? No one ever knew…

At the end of the opening, the artist joined the hunter who had had the skin of the rabbit.
