Construction Professionals Meet

With Bruno Magras


Last Friday evening at the Capi-
tainerie, the intent of a public
informational meeting of the
Inter-professional Building Syndicate
was to present the new board-and
its three co-presidents, Eric Plasse,
R6gis Pain, and Philippe Stouvenot-
and illustrate their desire to get more
involved in the development of the
island. Yet they might not see future
development in the same manner as
the president of the COM, Bruno
Magras, who was invited to the meet-
ing in order to address the major
issues. Magras presented the case for
a "decrease in activity," in order to
maintain the social and economic bal-
ance on the island. The president,
who until now has placed the build-
ing trade as one of the economic pil-
lars of the island, along with tourism
and public service, warned that
"while the building sector enjoyed
great growth during the past 30 years,
the future will not look the same." He
added as an illustration that the popu-
lation has jumped from 5,038 in 1990
to 8,450 by January 1, 2007. "That
means 402 residents per square kilo-
meter, while in Guadeloupe there are
just 246. If we want to tourists to con-
tinue to come here, 8,450 people are
already too many. The day that it
takes 50 minutes to drive from the
pharmacy to the post office, they sim-
ply will stop coming." For Bruno
Magras, this decline in activity is
inevitable and calls for a serious con-

trol of building: "there are currently
230 requests to change the classifica-
tion of lots in non-constructible
zones. If we agreed to these demands
it would lead to 1000 to 1500 addi-
tional houses. That is just not possi-
ble." The president is logically more
in favor of the renovation of existing
structures and projects that would
restore the loss of hotel rooms over
the past few years.
As for public building, often used to
supplement a decrease in private
building, the president did not hide
his opinion that the level of public
investment will also be on the
decline: "Our needs will not be on the


same level as the 1980s and 90s.
Today, our policy is to renovate exist-
ing structures. But we must find a
happy medium. We know that a
decline in the building trade would
mean a decline in import duties, and
therefore the income for the COM, as
well as for local suppliers. We must
pay attention to that." On the other
hand, the president feels that there
should not be any serious social prob-
lems due to loss of employment: "the
building sector uses flexible, immi-
grant manpower. If the sector slows
down, there will be a natural return to
their countries."

"...We could as
well be in Paris,
New York, or
London, but we
prefer to be
here!" After
more than
thirty years tra-
velling all around Asia, and the
world, Jean-Pierre Hennequet has
opened his second "GalerieAsie"
in Gustavia, St-Barths, at the back
of the harbour. His first one was
opened on Paris'left bank in the
mid-seventies, after he visited
China as early as 1972.
In Galerie Asie, some visitors feel


I


like being in a
Museum, disco-
vering a very
personal and
eclectic choice,
ranging from
Papua New
Guinea to
Tibetan religious pieces. Jean-
Pierre also shows an impressive
selection of Khmer sand-stone
sculptures, and many smaller
objects from almost every single
asian country. As well as a few truly
exceptional "Museum pieces",
including some from...Africa!

Alva Anchors In Saint Barth
topping briefly in Saint Barth
after crossing the Atlantic,
Alva-a large Swedish educa-
tional ship-anchored close to the
Gros Islets between January 31 and
February 3. This is a boat that's hard
to miss with its impressive size of
177 feet, and its classic allure with
three masts-it dates back to 1939.
This marks the first visit for Alva in
the West Indies and Saint Barth, and
there were 40 Swedish marine biolo-
gy students from the Maritime Center
in Dandryd (near Stockholm) aboard.
The Atlantic crossing was part of
their scholastic program.
In Saint Barth, the Association of-'
Saint Barth Friends of Sweden from 18 to 25. The association sees back to Sweden. Another

request of ASBAS, and welcomed the evening and headed to Saint Martin Saint Barth, during the
young Swedes, who ranged in age where the students caught a plane March or April.

THE TERRITORIAL
COUNCIL MIGHT
ADD A NEW TAX
BRACKET
At the upcoming terri-
torial council meeting
on February 12, one topic
of discussion will be the
possibility of a new brack-
et for the annual tax on
motorized road vehicles
that went into effect on
January 1, 2008. Last Sat-
urday, during a program on
Radio Saint Barth, Bruno
Magras brought up the
idea of a 500-euro tax for
cars and trucks between 15
and 25 fiscal horsepower,
so that the 2000-euro tax
would only apply to vehi-
cles rated above 25 fiscal
horsepower (a French sys-
tem for evaluating the tax
base on vehicles).


Twenty-four out of 39
members voted Feb-
ruary 3 to elect the
nine board members for
Saint Barth's Red Cross sec-
tion, which was created in
2005 and will now be a dele-
gation of the national organi-
zation, as Saint Barth has
become a COM. The board
met the next day to elect its
officers: Henri Louis was
reelected as president, a post
he has held for the past three
years. Reached by telephone
after the election, Louis not-
ed that he was touched by
the confidence the board
showed toward him, and
' Iuli .I'c I the principal activi-
ties the new delegation has
planned for the year. The
former police chief, who
spent his live saving others,


Wr f _-
Louis stressed that the Red
Cross puts a lot of impor-
tance on training people for
rescue actions, and that the
local branch has already
trained over 100 people in
how to respond in an emer-
gency situation. The installa-
tion of automatic or semi-
automatic defibrillators at
various public places around
the island is also on the list
of actions for this year. But
the largest undertaking will
be in the social sector, a new
direction for the Red Cross,
which plans to open a dis-
cussion group for people
with alcohol problems: "The
idea is to create a forum for


--- --~
dialogue, for liclir.-i and
help people help themselves,
much like Alcoholics
Anonymous," says Louis.
The delegation also plans to
help people in need or isolat-
ed in terms of the social
services of the COM: "Here,
people are proud. They don't
easily tell anyone that they
are in difficulty, so it is hard
to help them directly. That is
why until now we have pro-
vided small sums of finan-
cial aid via the social servic-
es office. But we are open to
all propositions," concludes
Louis, who asks the popula-
tion to become members of
the Red Cross.

Anik Karadjian is back
at Gallery Porta 34,
where she last presented a
memorable exhibition enti-
tled "Splash, etc..." This
year, Karadjian, or "AK,"
presents "Landscapes and
Horizons," an exhibit that
includes a new series of
large oil paintings on canvas
and 60 works on paper. "A
minimalist and sensual
vision of the landscape,
refined, with the colors of a
cosmic world between a
mystic aspiration and ideal-
ism," wrote D. Gavach, edi-
tor of Soualig'Art maga-
zine. A quote from writer
Fatos Arapi-"Wherever I
go I am part of the land-
scape from my country"-
inspired AK's new exhibit.
Born in Armenia, a country


she left in 1970 at the age of
9, the artist traveled exten-
sively, stopping briefly to
unpack her bags. Since
2004, she has split her time
between Nice and Saint
Martin.

K'N'B: Alain Landry's New Piano Bar


here's s. .iiiIlliii new
afoot in Grand Cul de
Sac, an area of Saint
Barth where there have been
major changes in the past
few years (the St. Barth
Beach Hotel, the Lafayette
Club, the Gloriette, and
Cocaloba are all places of the
past...). But pianist Alain
Landry, known to many from
his years of playing and
singing at Le Toiny and the
Guanahani, has taken the
lovely beachfront spot that
was Cocoloba and turned it
into Kazz'n'Blues, an infor-
mal outdoor restaurant which
opened last November. At
first, Landry and his piano
were outside as well, playing
for those who stopped by for
a light supper or a drink. As
of last week, the piano is
inside a new space called
K'N'B (part of the former


restaurant, La Gloriette), a
small piano bar decorated by
Landry's wife Angele with
small color-changing lights
on dark wood tables, sheet
music on the wall, and
bronze sculptures of dancers
by Alain's sister Maude. The
room in soundproofed as to
not disturb the neighbors.
"Many of my clients from
the hotels want a place to go
from 10pm to midnight,"
Landry explains, pointing
out that these are people
who are looking for a cozy
after-dinner lounge, but not
a nightclub. "They didn't
want to be outside all
dressed up for dinner, and
this is a very intimate spot,"
he adds.
Landry plays a wide variety
of music stemming from his
own mixed cultural back-
ground. He describes himself


as an American from
Guadeloupe who lived
many years in France, giv-
ing him a tie to guests
from France and the US as
well as the island. "I speak
Creole, French, and Eng-
lish," he notes. "I can explain
West Indian culture and even
play a zouk from time to
time. That music is my
roots." Landry has a long
song list and people are
invited to choose from the
hundreds, if not thousands,
of numbers he plays, after he
gets things going with a few
of his favorites.
His new piano bar, K'N'B, is
open every night from 9pm
to midnight, while the out-
door version, Kazz'n'Blues
is open for lunch and dinner
with bbq and ribs among the
items on the menu. Inside,
Landry offers champagne,


including Tattinger by the
glass, as well as a full bar. He
also serves up a tasty gumbo
(20 euros outside, 30 euros
inside) made true Louisiana-
style with okra and served
with rice and beans in small
blue and white bowls,
although as he puts it: "I am
an entertainer, not a restau-
rateur; the chef nourishes
your stomach, I nourish
your soul. So I need a spot
to entertain people. Now
with K'N'B, he has a place
to call his own, and hints
that he might add a second
piano outside more even
more entertaining.

Alain Le Chatelier: A Consummate Collector


any people know
Alain le Chatelier
as a painter. But
he is really a collector. An
incredible collection of
objects has found its way
into his life, and from there
it's a natural migration into
his paintings. If you look
closely you'll see them, cas-
cades of objects, some mun-
dane from everyday life,
some more esoteric, almost
from a fantasy world. Look
closely and you'll see every-
thing from Chatelier's own
black shoes (with bright red
laces) lurking in the corner
of a few paintings, and table-
tops covered with collec-
tions of boxes, masks,
spheres, and food. Ah food,
another one of Le Chate-
lier's favorite subjects....
Le Chatelier is back in Saint
Barth for his now annual


show at Les Artisans in Gus-
tavia. Actually his work can
be seen there i' 'iiLu iul the
year as there are always a
few treats on the walls, but
each year in February there
is an infusion of new work:


"This year I have a little less
to show than in past years,"
he admits. "I had a big show
in Sweden in September and

sold 48 out of 53 paintings."
He was also busy this fall
with a mural installation in
Chicago. "I did paintings for
the eight walls and ceiling of
an octagonal room," he
explains, noting that he


made me paintings in trance
then rolled then up to take
them to Chicago where they
were glued to the walls. "I
must have painted thousands
of roses-blue, purple, and
mauve," he says. Similar
roses can be seen in one of
his larger paintings at Les
Artisans, with a pastel floral
arrangement he calls "a
bride's bouquet," pointing
out that the bride is a marble
bust in his home. Holding
the bouquet is a man whose
hands are Le Chatelier's
own hands (I use a mirror,
he explains) and just a por-
tion of a man's head with
one bright blue eye peers out
from behind the flowers.
Another painting is of Le
Chatelier's country kitchen:
"This is where I paint in the
winter when it gets cold," he
notes. In fact with ice-cov-
ered trees and snow outside
of the window, the warm
light of the kitchen seems
extremely inviting. Both this
canvas and one of his studio
in Paris are painting from an
unusual angle, almost a
bird's eye view but not quite
from above. He refers to


these as "unfolded rooms"
where the viewer is wel-
come to the open space. The
studio has a vase of deep
purple anemones that match
the fabric on a 19th-century
armchair that was his grand-
mothers, while the view out
the window shows a classic
Parisian facade that has
notoriety, as it is the building
where Jim Morrison of The
Doors died. Visible in this
painting is a juxtaposition of
light, cool blue light coming
in from the window played
against the warm yellow
light of a lamp. Le Chatelier
also has an incredible sense
of humor that creates anoth-
er leitmotif in his work. One
recent painting is of stone
steps that the artist built in
his garden in the country,
with his own feet at the bot-
tom of the canvas as if he
were stretched out on a
chaise lounge admiring his
work. A kumquat tree, a
topiary rabbit, and an arched
brick doorway add to the
landscape. Le Chatelier has
also brought a series of tiny
paintings, measuring no
more than 8x10", which are
like miniature views into his
world. Two eggs sunny-side
up in a frying pan (so realis-
tic you can almost hear the
oil frying), radishes in a
colander in the sink, a teapot
with a cup of tea... and one
is almost all white, a color
Le Chatelier says "is new for
me. Very virginal and a
change from the reds I like
to use." When you see Le
Chatelier's work, look close-
ly-there is always a visual
surprise, from toast popping
out of a toaster or the lid of a
pot flying through the air, to
a melon partially sliced or a
cake waiting to be served.
Just bring a knife and fork
and dig in!

0 0 2 2St Barth Weekly n¡138 Last Friday evening at the Capitainerie, the intent of a public informational meeting of the Inter-professional Building Syndicate was to present the new boardÑand its three co-presidents, Eric Plasse, RŽgis Pain, and Philippe StouvenotÑ and illustrate their desire to get more involved in the development of the island. Yet they might not see future development in the same manner as the president of the COM, Bruno Magras, who was invited to the meeting in order to address the major issues. Magras presented the case for a "decrease in activity," in order to maintain the social and economic balance on the island. The president, who until now has placed the building trade as one of the economic pillars of the island, along with tourism and public service, warned that "while the building sector enjoyed great growth during the past 30 years, the future will not look the same." He added as an illustration that the population has jumped from 5,038 in 1990 to 8,450 by January 1, 2007. "That means 402 residents per square kilometer, while in Guadeloupe there are just 246. If we want to tourists to continue to come here, 8,450 people are already too many. The day that it takes 50 minutes to drive from the pharmacy to the post office, they simply will stop coming." For Bruno Magras, this decline in activity is inevitable and calls for a serious control of building: "there are currently 230 requests to change the classification of lots in non-constructible zones. If we agreed to these demands it would lead to 1000 to 1500 additional houses. That is just not possible." The president is logically more in favor of the renovation of existing structures and projects that would restore the loss of hotel rooms over the past few years. As for public building, often used to supplement a decrease in private building, the president did not hide his opinion that the level of public investment will also be on the decline: "Our needs will not be on the same level as the 1980s and 90s. Today, our policy is to renovate existing structures. But we must find a happy medium. We know that a decline in the building trade would mean a decline in import duties, and therefore the income for the COM, as well as for local suppliers. We must pay attention to that." On the other hand, the president feels that there should not be any serious social problems due to loss of employment: "the building sector uses flexible, immigrant manpower. If the sector slows down, there will be a natural return to their countries."The new board for SIB with the president of the COM (from left to right): Eric Plasse, co-president; Alain LeBellec, communication; RŽgis Pain, co-president; Laurent de Fabrique, CPAwho spoke during the social issues part of the meeting; Philippe Stouvenot, co-president; Bruno Magras, president of the COM; Marc Coia, associate secretary; Antoine Gaudens, treasurer.

0 0 4 4St Barth Weekly n¡138Stopping briefly in Saint Barth after crossing the Atlantic, €lvaÑa large Swedish educational shipÑanchored close to the Gros Islets between January 31 and February 3. This is a boat that's hard to miss with its impressive size of 177 feet, and its classic allure with three mastsÑit dates back to 1939. This marks the first visit for €lva in the West Indies and Saint Barth, and there were 40 Swedish marine biology students from the Maritime Center in Dandryd (near Stockholm) aboard. The Atlantic crossing was part of their scholastic program. In Saint Barth, the Association of Saint Barth Friends of Sweden (ASBAS) made up the welcome committee: a reception at the hotel of the collectivitŽ, a walking tour of historic Gustavia led by Helene Bernier at the request of ASBAS, and welcomed the young Swedes, who ranged in age from 18 to 25. The association sees the event as a deepening of the existing ties between Sweden and Saint Barth. €lva hoisted its sails on Sunday evening and headed to Saint Martin where the students caught a plane back to Sweden. Another group is scheduled to take their place for the return crossing. But before the boat sails back across the Atlantic, it should make another brief stop in Saint Barth, during the month of March or April. Älva Anchors In Saint Barth

0 0 6 6St Barth Weekly n¡138Twenty-four out of 39 members voted February 3 to elect the nine board members for Saint Barth's Red Cross section, which was created in 2005 and will now be a delegation of the national organization, as Saint Barth has become a COM. The board met the next day to elect its officers: Henri Louis was reelected as president, a post he has held for the past three years. Reached by telephone after the election, Louis noted that he was touched by the confidence the board showed toward him, and outlined the principal activities the new delegation has planned for the year. The former police chief, who spent his live saving others, Louis stressed that the Red Cross puts a lot of importance on training people for rescue actions, and that the local branch has already trained over 100 people in how to respond in an emergency situation. The installation of automatic or semiautomatic defibrillators at various public places around the island is also on the list of actions for this year. But the largest undertaking will be in the social sector, a new direction for the Red Cross, which plans to open a discussion group for people with alcohol problems: "The idea is to create a forum for dialogue, for listening, and help people help themselves, much like Alcoholics Anonymous," says Louis. The delegation also plans to help people in need or isolated in terms of the social services of the COM: "Here, people are proud. They don't easily tell anyone that they are in difficulty, so it is hard to help them directly. That is why until now we have provided small sums of financial aid via the social services office. But we are open to all propositions," concludes Louis, who asks the population to become members of the Red Cross. Anik Karadjian is back at Gallery Porta 34, where she last presented a memorable exhibition entitled "Splash, etcÉ" This year, Karadjian, or "AK," presents "Landscapes and Horizons," an exhibit that includes a new series of large oil paintings on canvas and 60 works on paper. "A minimalist and sensual vision of the landscape, refined, with the colors of a cosmic world between a mystic aspiration and idealism," wrote D. Gavach, editor of Soualig'Art magazine. Aquote from writer Fatos ArapiÑ"Wherever I go I am part of the landscape from my country"Ñ inspired AK's new exhibit. Born in Armenia, a country she left in 1970 at the age of 9, the artist traveled extensively, stopping briefly to unpack her bags. Since 2004, she has split her time between Nice and Saint Martin.

Last Saturday, during a program on Radio Saint Barth, Bruno Magras brought up the idea of a 500-euro tax for cars and trucks between 15 and 25 fiscal horsepower, so that the 2000-euro tax would only apply to vehicles rated above 25 fiscal horsepower (a French system for evaluating the tax base on vehicles).

H™tel Baie des Anges • Flamands • 0590 27 63 61 Michel and his staff are happy to welcome you to their pool-side restaurant for lunch & dinner. Lobsters Fresh From The Tank100 g for 6 euros There's something new afoot in Grand Cul de Sac, an area of Saint Barth where there have been major changes in the past few years (the St. Barth Beach Hotel, the Lafayette Club, the Gloriette, and Cocaloba are all places of the pastÉ). But pianist Alain Landry, known to many from his years of playing and singing at Le Toiny and the Guanahani, has taken the lovely beachfront spot that was Cocoloba and turned it into Kazz'n'Blues, an informal outdoor restaurant which opened last November. At first, Landry and his piano were outside as well, playing for those who stopped by for a light supper or a drink. As of last week, the piano is inside a new space called K'N'B (part of the former restaurant, La Gloriette), a small piano bar decorated by Landry's wife Angle with small color-changing lights on dark wood tables, sheet music on the wall, and bronze sculptures of dancers by Alain's sister Maude. The room in soundproofed as to not disturb the neighbors. "Many of my clients from the hotels want a place to go from 10pm to midnight," Landry explains, pointing out that these are people who are looking for a cozy after-dinner lounge, but not a nightclub. "They didn't want to be outside all dressed up for dinner, and this is a very intimate spot," he adds. Landry plays a wide variety of music stemming from his own mixed cultural background. He describes himself as an American from Guadeloupe who lived many years in France, giving him a tie to guests from France and the US as well as the island. "I speak Creole, French, and English," he notes. "I can explain West Indian culture and even play a zouk from time to time. That music is my roots." Landry has a long song list and people are invited to choose from the hundreds, if not thousands, of numbers he plays, after he gets things going with a few of his favorites. His new piano bar, K'N'B, is open every night from 9pm to midnight, while the outdoor version, Kazz'n'Blues is open for lunch and dinner with bbq and ribs among the items on the menu. Inside, Landry offers champagne, including Tattinger by the glass, as well as a full bar. He also serves up a tasty gumbo (20 euros outside, 30 euros inside) made true Louisianastyle with okra and served with rice and beans in small blue and white bowls, although as he puts it: "I am an entertainer, not a restaurateur; the chef nourishes your stomach, I nourish your soul. So I need a spot to entertain people. " Now with K'N'B, he has a place to call his own, and hints that he might add a second piano outside more even more entertaining.

0 0 8 8St Barth Weekly n¡138Many people know Alain le Chatelier as a painter. But he is really a collector. An incredible collection of objects has found its way into his life, and from there it's a natural migration into his paintings. If you look closely you'll see them, cascades of objects, some mundane from everyday life, some more esoteric, almost from a fantasy world. Look closely and you'll see everything from Chatelier's own black shoes (with bright red laces) lurking in the corner of a few paintings, and tabletops covered with collections of boxes, masks, spheres, and food. Ah food, another one of Le Chatelier's favorite subjectsÉ. Le Chatelier is back in Saint Barth for his now annual show at Les Artisans in Gustavia. Actually his work can be seen there throughout the year as there are always a few treats on the walls, but each year in February there is an infusion of new work: "This year I have a little less to show than in past years," he admits. "I had a big show in Sweden in September and sold 48 out of 53 paintings." He was also busy this fall with a mural installation in Chicago. "I did paintings for the eight walls and ceiling of an octagonal room," he explains, noting that he made the paintings in France then rolled then up to take them to Chicago where they were glued to the walls. "I must have painted thousands of rosesÑblue, purple, and mauve," he says. Similar roses can be seen in one of his larger paintings at Les Artisans, with a pastel floral arrangement he calls "a bride's bouquet," pointing out that the bride is a marble bust in his home. Holding the bouquet is a man whose hands are Le Chatelier's own hands (I use a mirror, he explains) and just a portion of a man's head with one bright blue eye peers out from behind the flowers. Another painting is of Le Chatelier's country kitchen: "This is where I paint in the winter when it gets cold," he notes. In fact with ice-covered trees and snow outside of the window, the warm light of the kitchen seems extremely inviting. Both this canvas and one of his studio in Paris are painting from an unusual angle, almost a bird's eye view but not quite from above. He refers to these as "unfolded rooms" where the viewer is welcome to the open space. The studio has a vase of deep purple anemones that match the fabric on a 19th-century armchair that was his grandmothers, while the view out the window shows a classic Parisian faade that has notoriety, as it is the building where Jim Morrison of The Doors died. Visible in this painting is a juxtaposition of light, cool blue light coming in from the window played against the warm yellow light of a lamp. Le Chatelier also has an incredible sense of humor that creates another leitmotif in his work. One recent painting is of stone steps that the artist built in his garden in the country, with his own feet at the bottom of the canvas as if he were stretched out on a chaise lounge admiring his work. Akumquat tree, a topiary rabbit, and an arched brick doorway add to the landscape. Le Chatelier has also brought a series of tiny paintings, measuring no more than 8x10", which are like miniature views into his world. Two eggs sunny-side up in a frying pan (so realistic you can almost hear the oil frying), radishes in a colander in the sink, a teapot with a cup of teaÉ and one is almost all white, a color Le Chatelier says "is new for me. Very virginal and a change from the reds I like to use." When you see Le Chatelier's work, look closelyÑthere is always a visual surprise, from toast popping out of a toaster or the lid of a pot flying through the air, to a melon partially sliced or a cake waiting to be served. Just bring a knife and fork and dig in! by Ellen Lampert GrŽaux Alain Le Chatelier: A Consummate Collector ©Rosemond GrŽaux
