Born in 1944 in Megrine (Tunisia), he lives and works in southern France. Both poet and artist, he writes on the eyes and makes sculptures made up of balls.
“I write texts on my eyes so that I can get into my eyes and go where my body does not go, where I have never been with it, where I do not remember being touchable. To go there on the page, in my head, in space.
I make balls so that I can get into my hands and go where my eyes do not go, where I have never gone with them, where I do not remember being visible. To go there in matter, in my body, on earth.”
In 1999, Jean-Luc Parant created Éboulement [Rockfall], a work located in Saint-Benoît Park, Digne-les-Bains.
