    After having collaborated with Robert Combas artist for the very first edition of Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping,

    Virginie Coupérie-Eiffel, event’s president and founder, proposed to Paola Pivi, Italian contemporary artist,

    to create the official poster of this 2nd edition… A slightly extraordinary dream, which became reality thanks

    to Galerie Perrotin that exhibits the artist from June 4th to August 1st 2015 in Paris, and the Société

    d’Exploitation de la Tour Eiffel. Thanks to the involvement of new contemporary artist each year, Longines

    Paris Eiffel Jumping is proud to promote and respect artistic creation.

    An artistic performance

    Paola Pivi is a free electron and enjoys to surprise and face spectator to confusing situations. She imagined

    an outstanding scenario and succeeded the ambitious bet to shoot horses at the heart of the Eiffel Tower’s

    impressive steel architecture, for an unusual and poetic photo session. Four stallions, owned by the famous

    horse trainer Mario Luraschi, were used in the ambitious process to achieve the perfect image on at sunrise

    on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower.

    The poster of Longines Paris Eiffel Jumping 2nd edition has been taken from this photographs series.

  • This new series of photographs will be displayed from June 4th to August 1st at Galerie Perrotin, within

    the framework of Paola Pivi’s exhibition “Yee-Haw”. This will be her 9th solo show at Galerie Perrotin.
