    the School of Fine Arts of Mexico in 1992. She shares her life between France and Mexico
    and exhibits regularly in these two countries.
     
    Fed to the classic techniques, Maguy Banq allies the work of the bronze to materials and forms
    of the minimalist art. Because the work lies itself in the association of its pure, geometrical,
    multiplied forms where her bronze work, as a way of cross, takes back the stages of the human
    condition. She is interested from the beginning of her researches in the "cycle of the absurd ",
    eternal resumption, symbolized in her works by the myth of Sisyphus. She experiences and
    expresses labour, absolute quest towards an ecstatic and calmed plenitude, which as for Albert
    Camus would tighten towards an "happy men".

  • . Benjamin Bichard

    After his studies he lived few years in Paris and was selected by the 57th Montrouge Salon for the young

    creation where he was discovered by Geraldine Banier gallery. In 2014 he came back to his native city,

    He still lives and works at Nice today.

  • . Joachim Biehler
    Joachim Biehler was born in 1981 in Strasbourg. He received the National
    Superior Diploma of Expression of Plastic Arts (DNSEP) of the Superior School of
    Art of Perpignan. 57th Salon of Montrouge.
     
    Familiar with the contemporary art milieu, he knows any of its subtleties or references, a
    nd enjoys twisting them with humor. Most of his works play an attraction-repulsion game.
    In the “like project”, one of his first series, Joachim substituted his face from contemporary
    art icons’ ones, such as ORLAN or Jeff Koons. The photomontage, a bit disturbing, makes us
    smile and wonder about the young generation’s place in this well-organized star-system.
    “Big sugar vanity” is also based on an ambivalent process: candies appeal and disgust us at the
    same time, placing us in direct confrontation with the vanity symbol. As a consequence, we connect
    sugar with our annihilating, blinded, consuming, warrior society.
    This work rests on a system of paradoxes. Through candies, Joachim captures a part of our senses:
    sight, sense of smell, taste. Our emotions are torn by the artist’s use of a material which deeply reminds
    us of childhood and feelings of immediate affection. Vanity reveals itself as a metaphor of today’s society,
    where the human being, often unconscious, sinks into warrior madness. With humor, poesy and irony,
    Joachim Biehler calls for a return to feelings.

    Francesca Gagliardi, as a plastic artist, has focused her work on femininity ambivalence, using
    female objects such as lace or lipsticks that she transposes in materials and patterns, usually
    associated with the art of war (iron or bronze, bullets, spears, helmets).
    New artist at the Galerie Géraldine Banier, her works named “Necklace”, “Bullets”, “Cartucerra”,
    “Home”, “Spear”, “Spears heads” and “Helmet”, illustrate her researches on the paradoxical female
    seduction. The objects swing from one field to the other: exposed to a dreadful daily life, these
    seduction weapons become defensive ones. Through “The Art of war”, the artist shows the drifts of
    a society of appearances, where the art of make-up and the art of war are very much alike.
    The Gallery Géraldine Banier has presented a solo show of Francesca Gaglardi at Art Paris Art Fair in March 2015.
  • . Frédéric Garnier

    Frédéric Garnier was born in 1970 in Troyes.

    All his really protean creations stage our questioning on the human existence.

    Its beginning and its term. Its meaning. What we name collectively « After «.

    Then what survives us is born, takes place in memoirs, « tracks of life ».

    Visual artist, he expresses himself through numerous mediums: sculpture, installation,

    photo, video and drawings. His reflections concentrate on the object, which makes link between

    the human being and the world. By using materials of our time (foil blanket, cement, plexiglasse),

    it anchors its works in our period. They crystallize questionings in the intimate and universal echos.

  • . Ottmar Hörl

    Ottmar Hörl (born 1950 in Nauheim, Germany) is a notable German artist, art professor and writer.

    Hörl has become famous with large installations in Berlin and Munich, among others, and will now realize a spectacular project of his "Art in the public environment" in the city of Nuremberg where he teaches as a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts since 1997.Using about 7000 plastic replicas of Dürer's hare Hörl will transpose the central square in the old town of Nuremberg into a large green corridor of 2500 m². For two weeks, the Nuremberg Main Market will become a "Large Piece of Hare" in honor of Albrecht Dürer before breaking up in its individual components and so to speak merge into the population.

    Duplication, the idea of serial production, and large numbers are the center of Hörl's projects. His art intends to inspire communication and to include as many people as possible. Dissolving of the large piece of hare into individual components is part of the concept. After two weeks, one may take a piece of hare home against a nominal charge. The hares move from a public to a personal environment. "I want to reach out with my work, set an impulse and let people take their Dürer home to allow individual, undogmatic altercation."

  • . Boris Jean
    Was born in Rabat (Marocco) in 1963.
    Leaves and works in Chelles (France)
     
    Stemming from the Beaux-Arts school of Tours and from the Conservatoire libre du cinéma français, Boris Jean
    became an art director and a director in the film industry (Les Épaves, Grand prix du festival d’Avoriaz),in
    advertising and live performance. Influenced by the Stanley Kubrick’s cult movie, he leads since 2001 his own
    odyssey, by building « Little Big », a futuristic city realized in miniature with rubbish and simply recycled objects.
    He who learnt with Jean Giraud aka Mœbius, to raise eyes towards the sky, invites us to look at the city as if it
    was overflown by a plane we were in, perceiving its lights through the porthole, and looking close to discover the
    way he plays with the architecture of the masters of the reinforced concrete and the vacuity of the Haussmann order.
    And because it is also a game, the spectator is urged to click three times on his smartphone to obtain a night even
    more mysterious, even more poetic, even more fantastic, urban vision of the landscape.
  • . Karoline Jeuffroy

    Karoline Jeuffroy was born in 1986 in Reims (France), she lives and works in Paris.
     
    Here’s a story of ‘’appearance" anchored in the work of Karoline Jeuffroy. Seem strong, seem fragile
    and to be neither one, nor the other …
     
    The bark or the envelope of its creations mislead us to better direct us towards the issue of the
    inconsistency between the inside and the outside and reveal the real identity of the objects
    surrounding us. Karoline likes to highlight the hidden and make us discover at the mercy of its
    diversions and Daliesques associations the fragility of a wall of bricks or the timelessness and the
    resistance of an egg. She emphasizes in reality transitional objects, those we only see the function
    without perceiving the richness of the human link thus created.
  • . Michel Laubu and...

    Michel Laubu, creator and artistic director of Turak since 1985, and Emili Hufnagel,

    co- director of the company since 15 years.

    Michel Laubu presents his theater in France and abroad ( Indonésie, Russie, Syrie, Norvège...).

    He was artisartner at Volcan, national stage of Havre, at Bateau Feu, national stage of Dunkerque,

    at Subsistances in Lyon...
    In short terms, he brings in France and abroad this strange theater, poetic and visual. The company

    has just its birthday of 30 years in 2015.

    Emili Hufnagel, accomplice of Michel Laubu, co-writes the projects with him. She is also a comedian

    in all the shows of Turak. 

    Turak in few words

    Turak, is a Theater of Objects and Puppet company, that develops a visual theater «all ground compatible»

    fed by diverted objects, by old or imaginary mythologies, by languages in multiple and invented accents.

    Known for its research work around the object, Turak mixes the puppet forms, the gestural theater and the

    plastic exploration. This tinkered poetry could be situated in the crossroads of the dance, the gestural theater

    and the plastic arts.

    The artistic approach of Turak lays on a game with the used object. Imaginary past, born from «the used of

    the object», memory and marks of an invented civilization, it is from this fictitious archaeology that shows and

    exhibitions are created.

    The shows written and staged by Michel Laubu thus address a very wide public. Every image having several

    levels of reading, the doors of access are not lacking. It is a writing in strata, with « theater in all the floors».

  • . Cyril Le Van

    before being interested in the urban space. Brought up in Parisian suburb, he is daily confronted
    with the sociocultural disparities, entailing his artistic approach to question the violence of
    relationships between individuals and society.

    as food retailers, Lavomatics and designer clothes. His sculptures are installations with real scale,

  • . Sylvie Mangaud

    Sylvie Mangaud is born in 1961, in Paris. She lives and works in Paris.

    Represented for eight years by the gallery, and now shown in numerous woldwide collections.

    It’s after graphology and morphology studies that Sylvie chose to turn towards the artistic creation.

    Fascinated by the strength of the body language she tries and catches its essence. She soon chose

    the bronze to represent these «postures» she likes : Attitude, Cool, Malice, Libertine. She plays with

    the material from which she removes all the gravity by building aerial and slender feminine lines.

    From this pure line are also born some fantastic animals, svelte elephants, proud and fragile horses

    and zebus with an undeniable elegance.

    It is the crossing of her activities that brought Sylvie naturally towards the sculpture.
    Originally, a photographer’s formation allows her to know how to seize the movement,
    the emotion, and to immortalize the moment. At the same time, she follows studies of
    morphopsychology which will allow her to observe and to include the subtleties of the body.
    The naked and the animals become straightaway her territory of preference without
    respecting the proportions which will define however her style. This style which is her
    so particular has a genesis: what was an involuntary distortion on its first pieces, became
    her signature, her creations are everything in lightness, sharpness and elegance, the purity
    of their lines expressing an authentic esthetic balance.

    Tailleur studied gold leaf technique in an Italian monastery before realizing her master 
    thesis on icons, at the University of Toulouse. Today, she lives and works in Paris.

    universe and are treated in the style of icons, using gold leaf technique. It generates a special 
    feeling, like an aura, that highlights the subjects and allows the artist to reintegrate them
    into society and history, sanctifying them.
