The Artist

Patrick Messina was born in Paris in 1967. After leaving the Ecole Louis Lumière, he took his first photographs for Libération, Télérama and Les Inrockuptibles. His recent personal work, in the field of the urban landscape, as in New York, Hong Kong, Paris, or in rural areas like Iceland, the hills of Languedoc, of the Gulf of Morbihan shows Patrick Messina as an artist who excels in witnessing to an intimate experience of spaces and giving a reading of them which helps us get to know them afresh.


Sirènes et midi net


Lasting exactly 12 minutes, this must-do show is staged in front of the Marseille Opera House on the first Wednesday of the month, when the city fire brigade's siren traditionally (and loudly!) rings out at midday. This urban ritual is orchestrated by the street arts troupe "Lieux Publics", also renowned for performances such as "Métamorphoses", created in 2013.
