CityTour is an ode to the French tourism culture and the obsession with the city of Love. School trips, the ‘I <3 Paris’ consumer behavior and the voyeuristic camp of touring has been a huge inspiration for this project. Marissa Baklayan and Karl Felix created characters that de-contextualize our ideas of travel through fantasy.
A retrospective of the first arrival to Paris with your French class, the hang-over mornings and sexy nights in public parks. A controversial moment of joy and the need to transcend the ideal of the presented masses.
