Michele Blazy - Installation View

On the occasion of his personal exhibition entitled How to proceed with crabs, beetles, ants, lizards, birds and mice? Michel Blazy invites the viewer to look at the everyday life of a gallery converted to an experimental space. Such a precise statement literally announces the content and the main issue of the project.
