To Learn Secrets from Magicians

Cody Leeder aka bête noire & Barbara Constantin aka bunny were, each in their own way, sculptors of archetypes, harnessing the magical power of vision, a vision of horror with snakes for hair, & a gaze which turns all living things into stone, so we traveled to Paris to pay homage to sculpture’s history, to learn secrets from magicians.
