Description: 

In 2002, I announced that I was coming to set up a brief exhibition at this studio.

In March 2003, Patrick Lannau showed at the Galerie de la Marine Un mercredi matin. In his studio Villa Serge at the EMAP, I put up an exhibition: hanging it up, handing out boxes of invitations, showing, taking it down; all in a matter of three hours.

Moved my studio to the showroom of canvas (made of felt for hats) by bike, in the Asian way, carrying unframed canvases that would later form the series Quête-le chaos, created mainly in the studio, ten canvases that will constitute the Neuf paysages de Gaétan Bellevue created concurrently in my studio.

9:00am – 10:30am: hanging up on the studio’s walls while the students work on their own project. Preparation of a mini buffet.

Then the distribution of invitations on stiff canvas made of felt for hats (blank 18cm x 7.5cm) to the students present. It's the same supply used for the presented canvas. Exhibition from 11 AM to 11:30 AM. 11:30 AM to 12 noon : removal.

This exhibition was seen by eight people.
