Mark Wallinger at MAC/VAL

Shakespeare Sarah-Neel Smith writing for I V Y paris

As if the French needed another excuse to stage a manif (protest). MAC/VAL (The Contemporary Art Museum of Val-de-Marne), in Vitry-sur-Seine, has imported one from London. Now on display through June 2008, 2007 Turner Prize winner Mark Wallinger's State Britian is an exacting replica of anti-war protester Brian Haw's 43-metre long installation originally situated outside London's Parliament, and confiscated by police in 2005.

Take the metro line 7 and then a short bus ride for the half-hour trip to MAC/VAL, which has a beautiful garden and a unique down-to-earth sensibility you won't find anywhere in central Paris.

(Keep an eye out in the April issue of British Art Monthly for Sarah-Neel's full report on MAC/VAL's mission to bring contemporary art to the Paris suburbs.)
