Until October 1, 2023, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie welcomes Belgian artist Maya Rochat for a colorful, immersive exhibition.

Since the beginning of the summer, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie (MEP, editor’s note) has welcomed Swiss visual artist Maya Rochat for her first solo exhibition. From the beginning of her career to her most recent exhibitions, Poetry of the earth tells the story of the link between man and nature, throughinstallations, performances, photographs and videos that are as close to life as possible.

Maya Rochat photographs nature: its ancient trees, its rivers, its stones, the mineral and vegetable world that surrounds her. From these images, she creates immense reproductions on which she tries out, experiments, provokes chemical reactions between pigments and various liquids, cuts, twists, colors, superimposes… Her works sometimes take the form of poufs in which you are invited to sit comfortably, sometimes the form of light boxes, interactive tableaux and abstract paintings that change color and move slowly within their frame. With this poetic, gentle exhibition, Maya Rochat brings you a real immersion in the living world from the Maison Européenne de la Photographie.

Until October 1, 2023, you can enjoy this immersive experience from the MEP in Paris!
