Air de Paris presents Michel Houellebecq’s first solo exhibition at the gallery.

In 2016, the Palais de Tokyo welcomed Rester Vivant, an exhibition thought as « a scenario […] which offered an immersion into the world and mind of the protean creator who is Michel Houellebecq » Quatrains brings together photographs, poems, songs, all intimately linked together, interlocked as the multiple facets of the artist.

The text on Inscritpions #028 is an extract of a quatrain from the poem La Disparition (La Poursuite du Bonheur, 1991) which will be recreated on the wall while a discman will play Présence Humaine (2000), a song by Michel Houellebecq from his eponymous disk (2000).

Michel Houellebecq (born in 1956) is a writer. He has been revealed in 1992 by the publication of Extension du domaine de la lutte. In 2010 he won the Prix Goncourt for La Carte et le Territoire. His work focuses on the «spleen of the in-between, the loneliness of the individual in a liberal world.»

A Polygraph writer, he is a poet(1) and an essayist(2). He has already diverted from literature for being a movie director(3) and an actor(4). He also lent some of his texts for music and performed as a singer(5).

The Cahier Houellebecq was published in 2017 by Les éditions de L’Herne.
