Voyage à Paris
,

At the request of Antwerp’s 1993 Cultural Capital of Europe, Jef Cornelis received an opportunity to produce the film Voyage à Paris. Using letters from famous visitors to Paris - Honoré de Balzac, Charles Baudelaire, Walter Benjamin, Cyriel Buysse, Alphonse Daudet, Sébastien Mercier, Henry Miller, Rainer Maria Rilke, Emile Zola and Guillaume Appolinaire - the image of the "city of lights" is interwoven with the history of salesmanship and purchase of "commodities" - from the old or "modern" approach to the merchandising of the present. Through the function of the "modern" approach to the relationship between salesman and consumer, the enticing Parisian passageways are examined in great detail. A visual essay on observing and being observing, fashion and consumerism and the fabulous fascination we continue to harbor for Paris.
