    REINVENTING CALAIS


    The CPIF hosts an exhibition of works from the Fonds National d’Art Contemporain collection, commissioned as part of “Réinventer Calais” (Reinventing Calais). This commission is part of the ongoing commitment of an association, PEROU, because: “It involves paying attention to how we collectively see Calais, because it involves looking beyond what seems obvious to so many and finally telling the story of a town/world crushed under the weight of a form of base iconography that only shows the very worst, because it involves making way at last for this “invisible town”, a town made up of buildings, dreams, human relationships and businesses of all sorts, all of which contribute to making a place what it really is and finally because it involves making public a different political interpretation and realising, at last, that the New Jungle in Calais is a “tiers paysage” (third landscape).” (Gilles Clément, President of PEROU).
