As part of the refurbishment works of the Grande Epicerie de Paris Rive Gauche, the Bon Marché architects entrusted Mathilde Jonquière with the creation of 9 mosaic murals for the different spaces in the market square: the Fish, the Truffle, the Iberian, the Bakery, the Chocolate, the Pastry, theCheese, the Italian and the Luxury sections. The challenge was to link the spaces together by using a common motif: tracing circles made up of tone-on-tone colored tesserae that represented the products on display. The Fish section, spread over three pans, covers a surface of 20 sq. m. and forms a monumental mosaic. It is highlighted by the light reflecting on each of its 120 shimmering scales,laid out in opposite directions, thus symbolizing the movement of the sea.
