by Alexandre Ciancio

‘‘ In the very heart of Le Panier, busy suburbs and quiet museums. Venetian blinds barely opened, loud TVs, the whisper of the neighborhood resound on the diffracted façade. Inhabited balconies, raging neighbours, the passion of the area reverberates like in a light box. ”

The Artist

Born in 1988, Alexandre is a graduate of the National School of Architecture in Nantes. His mentors include Benjamin Avignon, Louis Paillard, Philippe Barré and Pascal Fourrier. In 2010, he took part in the Eiffel photo contest and presented his thesis ''The dream machine, or the return of fiction to the postmodernists'' to Valéry Didelon (Criticat magazine, Paris). He won the Fine Arts Academy's Grand Prize for Architecture in 2011.




The "Frac Provence-Alpes Côte d’Azur" is part of the new infrastructures built in celebration of Marseille-Provence 2013. Designed by Kengo Kuma, it reflects the diversity of the contemporary art on show, including 950 works by 460 international artists on the Mediterranean basin theme.
