Nessim Cohen is a Paris-based performance and mixed-medium artist with a background in philosophy, ceramics, calligraphy, and the Japanese tea ceremony. He studied in Japan for more than 2 years with ceramists such as Sasaki Kyoshitsu Shouraku IV and several tea artists. Since returning to Europe 7 years ago, his artistic journey has been fueled by a desire to develop his own aesthetic and rituals. Quietness lies at the heart of Nessim's work. This tranquility can only be born through a reconnection with our natural world and inner self. In recent years, he has sought to express the beauty of what is already there, perhaps of what is not there for long anymore. While the tea ceremony served as his canvas for many years, he is now exploring new kinds of mediums such as painting with clay and collage, to channel this. 

7/26-7/28 we would like to invite you to participate to this peaceful experience.
