Gaston Chaissac's work is one of the most abundant and singular of the 20th century. As a draughtsman, painter, sculptor, writer and poet, he never ceased to reinvent words, create forms and divert everyday objects. He lived in Sainte Florence and left his mark there by painting the toilets in the old school, which have since been listed as a Historic Monument, and can be seen during the visit.
Enjoy an immersive experience as you explore the spaces that tell the story of Gaston Chaissac.
