Laurent Pariente has traveled all sorts of roads.
Running away young was the most painful one. Early on, his paths converged toward artistic creation. Laurent offers his audience a labyrinth to get lost in. Clay mazes, chalk labyrinths…
One day, Laurent Pariente decides to shift direction: he becomes a head chef in New York. We no longer walk through his creations; we now taste them, absorb them. For him, these various directions are part of the same path. He carries on with his work, creating and amazing.
