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.

Following the opening of his studio, “El Chark Societe Photographic,” on Beyoğlu’s Postacılar Caddesi in 1857, the Levantine-descent Pascal Sébah moves to yet another studio next to the Russian Embassy in 1860 with a Frenchman named A. Laroche, who, apart from having worked in Paris previously, is also quite familiar with photographic techniques.
