It's May, and it's time to celebrate the annual Le French May Arts Festival. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, the festival offers more than 100 programmes ranging from dance, exhibitions, and music to food and wine. In an earlier show, we introduced an exhibition that takes you - via virtual reality - to the Palace of Versailles. Today, we look at an exhibition by renowned Japanese artist, Yuki Onodera, who has been based in Paris for three decades. The exhibition, at wamono art, features a selection of her works, including the “Here, No Balloon” series which focuses on a part of Paris’s history that has disappeared.
