Enquire


Place de la République and Place de la Nation are central squares in Paris, the awe-inspiring buildings such as the Magasins Reunis were designed by Gabriel Davioud - the official city architect of Paris. While depicting the beauty of the facades, Hong Sek Chern makes an important comment on the shooting at the French satirical newspaper - Charlie Hebdo - office on the 7th of January. Instead of 'Je suis Charlie' (I am Charlie) which was the slogan championed by supporters of free speech, she writes 'Nous sommes Charlie' (we are Charlie) in a show of solidarity and support.
