Exhibition with Abbas Khodavesi (Brussels - 2018)
I met Abbas Khodavesi in Lille. He is an Iranian artist, who has been living in France for 40 years. He started to work as an interior designer. Mixing wood, metals and plastic, his creations were always surprisingly pop and harmonious. In each place he designed, he produced a tableau, mixing different materials revealing a character coming from another world.
The LED incorporated in his works bring a dual reading of his work. With the light, characters look as if they came to life ; god and goddess represented give breath and power to their representations.
We organized with the Artist one exhibition in Brussel, Bog-Art, in June 2018, which was greatly appreciated.
Collective sculpture with “Mystères du Grand Paris” (Paris - 2016)
In 2015, I missed events organisation. I embarked on a new adventure through the association “Les Mystères du Grand Paris” (The Mysteries of the Big Paris). The “Grand Paris” is the concept to bring together Paris and its suburbs to create only one big community, with common transport network and cultural exchanges. The second objective of the “Mystères du Grand Paris” was to create a novel serial that guiding the reader through the cultural aspects of the “Grand Paris”.
In June 2015, I organized, for this association, the “Grande Fête du Gros Paris” which gathered 15 associations.
This event was the opportunity to share ideas on the concept of “Grand Paris”, but also to attend artistic performances as concerts or street art frescos. My preferred idea was the creation of a collective sculpture. For this part of the event, I contacted the welder-artist Francky Bruneau.
He created an alien sculpture based on all the metallic elements brought by the guests. At the end, an impressive monster singing in the rain came to life !

Fashion show on the 5 senses (Paris - 2011)
When I was in my engineering school (2010), I organized a special event on the 5 senses thematic. For this event, I contacted the French artist Pascaline Bonnave to create a fashion show. She created 5 dresses ; each of them being linked to one sense. The dress for the view was enlighted. The one for the hearing was tinkling. Her creations were poetic, sensual, in varied textiles.
Pascaline Bonnave is also a wonderful painter in naïve or realistic art.
