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 Montmatre, 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 more than 250 languages 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 numerous 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.
Thank you Brenda !

Comment dit-on i love you ? How to say I love you ?
Wouldn’t this make an awesome urban backdrop for a Paris wedding photo session?
In the Square Jehan-Rictus, just behind the Abbesses metro station in Paris,
stands a sweet tribute to one of the most popular phrases in the world :
Le Mur des Je T’aime - The Wall of I Love You’s.
Starting in 1992, French musician Frédéric Baron began collecting “I Love You’s” -
asking neighbors, friends and strangers all around Paris to write “I Love You” in their own language
on little pieces of paper.
When he was finished, he had collected 1000 I Love You’s in over 300 languages,
which he and artist/calligrapher Claire Kito then translated onto glazed lava tiles to create the wall.
The artist writes on his website: “To go among others and ask them to write “I love you”
is to create a passport which erases borders and opens hearts.
I took note of it, but I understood at the same time, that it was not only a question of words
and that love is subject to other laws. One day a civil servant
from an Embassy of an African country told me: “you Westerners say I love you right away.
In our country, a woman serves the best piece of meat on the plate to her man and that becomes
a declaration of love”.Cocteau also said, “there is no love, there is only proof of love”.
One does not play with love. It is a serious affair.
Even without knowing what I wanted to do with them, the “I love yous” took me a long way.
They forced me to treat them like a real job. Please understand, I certainly do not pretend
to have accomplished a scientific work: on the contrary, if this venture has succeeded
it is because it has conserved its romantic side, its original purity.
Men and women of all races and all walks of life have left their trace on paper
like a gift fallen from heaven. A free gesture.”
Why not serenade your honey this Valentine’s Day with an I Love You in Wolof,
Khmer or Lingala? Visit the wall’s website visit the official site at LESJETAIME.COMto find out how.
