Within his work, Paul Lahana tries to recreate the superfluous details of our world. His artistic practice is not an attempt to encourage the public to perceive our world in a different way. However he is interested in how daily details appear to us. In the re-making of the lived experience, he aims to create a new one, different from the original in terms of materials and duration. He notices things and details that someone else can completely ignore. Thanks to this field of experimentation, the quality of Paul Lahana’s works lays in his attempts to disguise them within the exhibition space.
Born in Castres in 1988. He graduated in 2014 from École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris.
