Thierry Boyer exhibition: Traces, roots, imprints – From March 2 to March 23, 2024

Disturbing, contemplative, contrasting, phantasmagorical... There is no shortage of adjectives to describe the dense and protean work of Thierry Boyer, an artist who died early in 2022.

From the memory of the industrial past of his native Carmausin basin to the networks, veritable satellite maps of the infinitely small, his works sublimate our ability to image time forever gone by capturing traces, roots and imprints.
Exhibition at the Hôtel Rochegude, at the Frigo and at the Cheminée in Albi
Opening reception on Friday March 1, 2024 at 17:30 p.m. at La Cheminée, 18:30 p.m. at Le Frigo and 19:30 p.m. at the Rochegude hotel
