Rue du Perche, the Galerie Particulière is showing from February 5 to 27, Gilles Coulon’s, Hivers(s), Philippe Lopparelli and his work, an homage to Arthur Rimbaud d’Arthur à Zanzibar.
With Hivers(s), Gilles Coulon takes a new step on his photographic trail: a concise story in a few stark images. Seven snowy landscapes evoking death and homelessness. As part of his “France 14” project on exhibit at the BnF, the use of death announcements in this photographic story is an abrupt change for this photographer otherwise focusing on people.
D’Arthur à Zanzibar. The last ten years of his life, Arthur Rimbaud lived in exile between Aden et le Harar, forever dreaming about Zanzibar. This magical island illustrates the “better a bit farther away” that he searched for in vain throughout his life. Rimbaud would never make it to Zanzibar. With this project, Philippe Lopparelli provides homage to this unfinished existential quest, a journey towards Rimbaldien eternity, that of “the sea with the sun”.
