Portrait of an almost urban jungle, the Bois de Vincennes on the outskirts of Greater Paris is what Claire Simon presents in her latest work. Like an accessible form of Paradise Lost within reach of all, everybody goes there to seek refuge or solitude, depending on how you look at it.  The forest admits people from all social classes without any discrimination, and open its arms like a mirage dreamed up by the inhabitant tired of the city. Here, the difficulties of living in the city are left behind and a kind of green therapy appears: citizens play, have fun and dream, quite the opposite of what normally happens in their grey reality.
