    from 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

    Benjamin Bichard was born in Nice, France, in 1982. He’s graduated from the famous Villa Arson in 2010.

    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.

    He has chosen everyday objects, assimilated to our consumption, to realize them into new forms by

    accumulation, assembly, twisting and cutting. His modular objects reveal the aesthetic power of

    these invisible actors of our everyday life. 

  • . 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, and 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.

    he began his thesis at the Sorbonne, Paris, about stylistic persistence in art history. These
    writings and his work as a correspondent for two Korean newspapers not only mark out and
    guide his personal creations in recovery and appropriation of news feed, but also revisit
    the perpetual patterns in art history.

.

    Leaves and works in Paris

    The Work of Nicolas Demeersman, often debated, gathers pictures where col- lide the genres :

    the elegance and the trash, the seriousness and the absurd, the reality and the fiction ...

    Considering that it is as well important to please as to displease, he approaches contemporary

    subjects to deceive values, aprioris and visual codes. Beyond the esthetics, he stages «the agreed»

    pushed in its extreme, wishing to question us about our positions and their internal logic. 

  • . Fouapa
    Pierre-Jean Choquelle alias Fouapa is 29-year-old and lives in Boulogne (France).
    He arises from the universe of the comic strip in which he participated in several projects and
    published his first book in 2013. He develops since 2014 an artistic universe inspired by the
    cabinets of curiosity and the works of the big anatomists whom he explores with an illustrative
    treaty where the color plays a determining role. Fanatic of the object, he attempts to use his
    frames as an extension of his subject, by adding it objects of recoveries, former ornaments and sometimes bones.
    He begins to expose in Paris, Lyon then Caen in 2015 and realizes numerous works on orders for
    private collectors.
  • . Francesca Gagliardi

    and in Plastic-Arts from the Fine-Arts Academy, Brera, she improved herself in engraving at
    the University of Ghent in Belgium and at the University of Complutense in Madrid.
     
    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.

    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."

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.
  • . Lino Lago

    Lago Lino was born in Spain in 1973, he’s graduated from the Compultense University of Madrid, he lives and works in Lithuania. 

    From the beginning of his studies, Lino Lago questions the place of the work of art in the contemporary world, and more particularly that of painting. Often by the absurd, he saw the canvases of Masters; always with humor, disfigures them by great tasks thrown at the chance of his gesture. Jubilatory act. He plays with classical references, exploring through them, the relationship to art. His recognized work is present in several institutional and private collections.

  • . Michel Laubu and...

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

    company since 15 years.

    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».

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

    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.

  • . Jordane Saget
    Was born in Pithiviers (France) in 1980.
    Leaves and works in Paris.
     
    Self-taught, Jordane Saget embellishes Paris with his arabesques, and has done so, for a little more than year.
    From his secret diary to the street, he draws with chalk, ephemeral art in the subway, (Concorde metro station
    was his first gallery), on pavements and on the famous Fürstenberg square (his biggest horizontal artwork),
    around the columns of Buren (his unfinished work), on carriage and building entrances. These arabesques,
    composed of three white lines, are much more than a simple ornament of the urban decor, they play with the
    architectural disorders and invite us to follow them until we get lost in our own imagination.
     
    During Bizarro 2016 (multiple galleries itinerary and exhibition), organized by the Gallery Géraldine Banier, Jordane
    Saget decorated the mirrors of the Hotel, in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, a four hands art work with Jean-Charles de
    Castelbajac. He gives up on this occasion the pen name J3 and presents his first geometrical paintings.

    tracks of buildings and urban furniture.

    feeling, like an aura, that highlights the subjects and allows the artist to reintegrate them
    into society and history, sanctifying them.
  • . Fulati Tayierjiang
    Born in 1977 to Xinjiang, China, Fulati Tayierjiang lives and works in Paris today.
    57th Salon of Montrouge.
     
    His work explores the idea of the integration of an individual in the society and looks for
    a relation between him and things, between its body and the landscapes. His approach
    associates painting and photography: originally a simple paint on cliché. 
    From 2006, he begins a series of photos of his painted hand, as continuation or
    misappropriation of the landscape. The hand is the central element, the representative
    himself and his being, telling its story. The lines of the hand are in the landscape, they
    establish themselves there and confront with it, as the slow process of integration of
    an individual in a new culture.
