Photographic exhibition: "The colorful parade - Photographic tale"


Free Free admission

By Cédric Villani - Photographs by Lisa Roze - Editions du Chêne

Composed of an original series of photographs hand painted and heightened with gold leaf, "The Colored Parade, photographic tale", combines the exceptional and timeless work of photographer Lisa Roze with the delicate verses of Cédric Villani, making this work an object as precious as it is atypical. This poetic tale takes the reader to a world apart, where the artists (Vanessa Paradis, Matthieu Chédid, Marie-Agnès Gillot, Thomas Dutronc, Léa Seydoux, Mariacarla Boscono, Gaspard Ulliel ...) are shrouded in magic and poetry, a timeless and dreamlike world, from which he might well not want to return ...

Lisa Roze is a Parisian photographer of English and Japanese origin. She took her first photograph at the age of eleven with a pinhole camera made with a shoebox.
This renowned portrait painter has collaborated with many artists from the world of music and the arts. She has also produced "The Extraordinary Book of -M-", published in 2011 by Flammarion. For almost twenty years, she has regularly exhibited her works in galleries, festivals and museums. In 2018, his last exhibition took place in the Florence and Damien Bachelot collection with "Des Villes et des hommes" at the Hôtel des Arts in Toulon and was published in the book published on the occasion by Clémentine de la Feronnière.
Claiming to be masters of XNUMXth century photography, such as Nadar or Cameron, she says she is very inspired by the magic of daguerreotypes and still works old-fashioned, in film and in the camera. Intervening in her photographs in a very artisanal way, she projects her work to the rank of plastic artist, making each of her pieces an original work; color photos.

Cédric Villani is a renowned mathematician and a French politician. A former student of the Ecole normale supérieure in Paris, he became a teacher and researcher, then director of the Henri-Poincaré Institute, an establishment at the heart of French mathematics. His work has earned him several national and international recognitions, including the Fields Medal in 2010, one of the most prestigious awards in mathematics. A member of the Academy of Sciences and of the Pontifical Academy, he has served on numerous scientific councils, including the High Level Group of the European Commission. Member of Parliament for Essonn, he is also president of the Musaïques association, at the crossroads between art, technique and disability inclusion. He has made several collaborations with artists, such as the musician composer Karol Beffa (Behind the scenes of creation) or the designer Edmond Baudouin. He repeats that the links between mathematics and poetry are very strong, and that the mathematician as the poet both work to "recreate the world".
