Michel Houellebecq: Rester vivant

Palais de Tokyo, Avenue du President Wilson 13

Palais de Tokyo, Paris presents the new exhibition “Micheal Houellebecq: Rester vivant”.

The show is not “about” Michel Houellebecq, but it is “by” Michel Houellebecq, demonstrating how the writer has produced a form that contributes to the reinvention of exhibitions, by mixing up literature and photography, between fact and fiction

Poet, essayist, novelist and filmmaker, Michel Houellebecq has always had close ties with the cinema and the world of the visual arts, which have accompanied and extended his reflexions since the start of his career, as the frequent allusions to them in his novels attest.

This show is a scenario, leading visitors through the writer’s obsessions. Made up of sounds, photographs, installations and films he has conceived, as well as the presence of several guest artists (Robert Combas, Raphaël Sohier, Renaud Marchand and Maurice Renoma) it will offer an immersion into the world and mind of the protean creator who is Michel Houellebecq.

An issue of the magazine PALAIS is entirely dedicated to the exhibition. Copublished with Flammarion.
An associated program will propose extensions to the exhibitions. Details and dates available soon.
