I Love You Wall in Paris

Paris remains the most romantic city in the world. Paris is such a ruler of this genre that it presents many monuments to love with the majority of them being ancient and awe inspiring.

In Montrmatre, the home of the artists, stands a modern display of love. A wonderful project created by Frédéric Baron who has recorded “I Love You” 1000 times written in 300 langauges and dialects. The script is displayed on a wall in a beautiful park setting. This is fast becoming a meeting spot for lovers

“One does not play with love. It is a serious affair.” by Frédéric Baron.

Baron began his project in 1992 by wandering the streets of Paris and asking people to write these words in their mother tongue. Baron feels he has toured the world without ever leaving Paris.

LE MUR DES JE T'AIME is a wall finished in lava enamelled tiles. Each tile holds it’s own message of love. You will see chips of color spread through the face. This is to symbolize fragments of broken hearts. 612 tiles each in the shape and size of Baron’s original note books present the 1000 I Love Yous.

If you visit Paris you will find the wall in Paris, Buttes Montmartre, Place des Abbesses, in the Square Jehan Rictus. Take the Metro to Abbesses. The admission is free and a great spot for photos.
