Paul Paillet
fascination for fire

Exhibition from September 18 till December 12, 2020
Opening Thursday September 17, 2020, 2 PM – 8 PM

Paul Paillet’s solo exhibition at the Centre d’édition contemporaine was intended to open in March 2020, but was postponed due to lockdown until September 2020.

Each of these elements contains various cultural and personal indices that construct a kind of staged presentation.
