Born in 1970, Cecile Paris is an artist who sweeps the field of our common spaces, and through her films, photographs, collages and drawings, delivers a thousand possible interpretations, most often giving birth to a hypnotic strangeness where melancholy mixed with gentle rebellion hovers.

Founder of the label “Code de nuit”, a community project, she often works in collaboration with musicians, dancers, or choreographers. Notably, her videos are included in the collections of the Mac/Val (Museum of contemporary art Val-de-Marne) in Vitry-sur-Seine, and the Musée d’art moderne (Museum of Modern Art) in the city of Paris.

Midnight Stories: Hotel of Retro Dreams
Doğu Yücel

He didn’t expect this from me. And I hadn’t expected that we would decide to get married that day, at that moment. Everything happened all of a sudden, but exactly like it was supposed to happen in our day. We thought of the idea of marriage simultaneously, we smiled simultaneously, blinking and opening our eyes in unison. 

The First Nudes

The First Nudes

Men were the first nudes in Turkish painting. The majority of these paintings were academic studies executed in oil paint; they were part of the education of artists that had finally attained the opportunity to work from the live model. The gender of the models constituted an obstacle in the way of characterizing these paintings as ‘nudes’. 

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.
