Paris exhibition: Enter the gloomy cosmos of writer Michel Houellebecq

Best known for his gloomy novels, French writer Michel Houellebecq has opened a new multi-media exhibition in Palais de Tokyo in Paris that includes photographs alongside his literary creations.

Enfant terrible or literary darling? Michel Houellebecq is well known for writing literature that sparks debate both in his native France and abroad. After his most recent novel, "Submission" was published on the same day as the massacre in the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris, Houellebecq has been quieter due to death threats.

In a new exhibition by Michel Houllebecq, curated by Jean de Loisy, at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the writer's inner world is brought to life. Photographs are hung alongside his poetry and excerpts from longer works to give visitors insight into the writer's obsessions.

Click through the gallery above for a brief tour of the exhibition, which runs through September 11, 2016.
