Christian Boltanski is considered as one of France’s most famous and influential living artist.

Boltanski subtly weaves the different temporalities of his life and work to produce two large installations: a labyrinth of veils suspended from the ceiling and a contemplative piece composed of a video projection and a bed of hay and cut flowers.
