Missing Stories – La Cinquième île [The Fifth Island]
With this personal exhibition at Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, photographer and artist Laura Henno presents the outcome of her encounters with migrants from the Réunion to Comoros to the ‘jungle’ of Calais. Through a series of photographs based on the Réunion Islands and her two films (Missing Stories), the photographer merges the individual narratives with the collective history in a genre that lies between documentary realism and art fiction.

At Musée des Archives nationales, Hôtel de Soubise
Rafales – Pavillon de l'Exil. 1ère Escale
Rafales (Gusts) is a choreographic performance that evokes the power of wind as the two moving bodies reinvent themselves in the rhythmic flow and the violent vitality of gusts of wind.
October 10, 2016 to October 23, 2016
At Mairie du 3e Arrondissement
If the installation ‘Dandelion’ reminds one of Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel or Ai Weiwei’s Forever Bicycles installation, artist Luc Lapraye’s bicycle wheels laid out in a hemisphere are not just meant to recycle the history of art but they also hint at contemporary ecological issues.

October 7, 2016 to October 20, 2016
At Crédit Municipal de Paris
Cyril Zarcone's Helical Flight (La volée hélicoïdale)
In a direct dialogue with the history of Credit Municipal de Paris’ magnificent building and the remains of a medieval tower that are still visible there, artist Cyril Zircon imagines a staircase, a helical flight (La volée hélicoïdale), potentially locked inside the tower.

At Centre Pompidou
Regards croisés sur les migrants
In the collective consciousness, the phenomenon of migration generates a fictional media and political discourse that obstructs an objective and dispassionate examination of the issue. But, as the work of artist Laura Henno shows, certain fictions (such as, reinvention of personal identities as a means to survival) are integral to migrations. Does the dialogue between philosophy and fiction also take into account the human narrative? The migratory fictions, are they not a part of the reality of migrants? How does it finally translate in visual arts?
