Cyril Hatt

France (1975)

Le Picotin


Through a photographic installation, as poetic as was the kind-hearted Claude Nobs, Cyril Hatt invites the public into the legendary chalet Le Picotin, which is well known by festivalgoers but which only a lucky few got to visit. Jukeboxes, hats, souvenirs and photographs, artworks, rare LPs, and a whole range of musical instruments recreated in 3D with loads of snapshots, sellotape and staples: this vast and original collection immerses us in the intimacy of the Picotin, in the heart of a life built on passion and friendship.

This exhibition was presented at Montreux Jazz Festival from 1 to 16 July (level B5 of 2M2C) before moving to Vevey for Festival Images in an enhanced version
