Alongside his two curators, Céline Kopp and Cindy Sissokho, and in discussion with Eva Nguyen Binh, President of the Institut français, Julien Creuzet unveiled his project, which draws on the imaginary worlds of the Caribbean, at the crossroads of African, Indian and European cultures. As the first artist from the French overseas territories to occupy the French Pavilion, Julien Creuzet wanted the announcement event to be held in Martinique, in the Maison Édouard Glissant, in order to highlight this territory and its artistic scene, the source of his inspiration.
