"Le rendez-vous 11 11 18"
A collective of 20 artists, for peace and against all wars: paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures ...
In Paris 20th from November 7th to 18th
"To unite for the peace and the memory of all the wars and outrages to humanity, to pay homage to the soldiers, men, women, children, cities and nature damaged by the conflicts"
My contribution to this exhibition mirrors two series of photos organized around a text, in which I denounce the destructive war of youths who were enemies only by the antagonisms that powerful people had decided for them. The first series of photos was made by my grandfather on the Meuse front in 1914-1915. Through the second, I wanted to echo it through images of the same places visited today. Places of memory, places invaded by vegetation or simply land marked by the stigmata of trenches and explosions of shells.
The exhibition will take place in two places, from November 7 to 18 (Wednesday to Sunday from 12h to 19h) :
- at the gallery Ménil 8 - 8 Rue Boyer, Metro Gambetta, where you will see my contribution
- at the church of Menilmontant and the crypt, ND de la Croix, 4 Rue Eupatoria, Metro Ménilmontant, also accessible by foot (10 minutes) from the gallery Ménil 8, where I also encourage you to go.
The vernissage will take place Saturday, November 10th from 18:30 to 21h. I will be happy to welcome you if you are available on this schedule. But I will also be present at other slots. Do not hesitate to tell me (by mail or by phone 06 71 14 50 63) when you want to spend, so I'll try to be present.

A vast panorama, both graphic and sociological, of bike in all its states and in all its latitudes. Under the gaze of the photographer, bicycles become characters in themselves and tell their thousand ways, around the world, to find their place in our daily lives.
