This exhibition invites us to explore the many aspects and possibilities of play throughout the world, through the prism of toys and childhood. In giving imagination power over reality, Seth opens the door to a unique and personal form of freedom.
Through dreamlike installations featuring his encounters with children in Madagascar, Indonesia, Haiti, Ukraine and China, he evokes his travels around the world.
Strolling down Rue Marmaille, scattered with mischievous children, Seth reveals his Paris, where nostalgia meets our contemporary issues. We discover masked sculptures from the four corners of the globe, paintings that dialogue with childhood board games. We pass through a rainbow tunnel, a whirlwind of creativity that opens the door to fantasy and wonder.
Puns come to life, and visitors’ portraits magically merge with Seth’s works.
