The Predictions of a One-Night King
October 21-25, 2015
11am – 7pm
Next to the Grand Palais, Square de Berlin, Général Eisenhower avenue, Paris, France
Do you remember of the visionary man Saul Wahl, the spiritual ancestor of Chalet Society ? Crowned king of Poland back in 1586 for a night, this forgotten historic figure was famous for his exceptional clairvoyance. All his life, he wrote down prophecies in a notebook that remained missing for centuries. Three years ago, his distant descendant Marc-Olivier Wahler found this archive and made it available for consultation to some historians and artists invited to present projects in connection with these prophecies.
Chalet Society pays tribute to this father figure and the budding prophet in all of us by presenting a future friendly exhibition in an authentic wooden Swiss chalet, installed next to the Grand Palais, in Square de Berlin.
The public and friends of Chalet Society will be invited to write or post predictions online some of which will later be made into an artwork by one artist in the exhibition.
