For his big return to L’ahah, Vincent Hawkins will take over the association’s two exhibition spaces, #Griset and #Moret, at the heart of the 11th arrondissement, Paris, with a double soloshow, Planet & Satellites.

This exhibition will be accompanied by a text, written for the occasion by Reverend Richard Davey, senior researcher fellow at the School of Art & Design of the Nottingham Trent University.
