    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".
  • . Helder Batista

    banner of country which took weapons in the name of the constitution (2d American Amendment),

  • . Marion Beaupère
    Marion Beaupère was born in 1991 in Meaux, France. Today, she is into the third
    year of her post-graduate studies in the School of Fine Arts of Nîmes.
    At the age of 14, she began a Rotring series, considered by the artist as a protective
    covering and life-saving freedom. Since then, Marion Beaupère works on the limits of
    the body, from psyche to entrails, focusing on creation and its role in the vital process.
    For the artist, life, creation and death areparts of the same mechanism, an alienating and
    surrealist spiral.
  • . Manuèle Bernardi

    Manuèle Bernardi, was born in 1959 in Saint-Tropez.

    After studies to the Academy Roederer and to Beaux-Arts de Paris, she becomes a decorator and a

    wardrobe master then an illustrator, before choosing to express herself by the painting and nally,

    the sculpture. She lives and works in Roussillon.

    This plastic artist explores the feminine representation in what she has of links
    in her ecosystem. She makes perceptible invisible emotion of two beings which connect,

    the alchemy of a group which moves towards a common destination. Her sculptures, Callipygia,

    in feet anchored well in the reality, rise unconditionally towards the other one, the waves pass.

    In her installations, of which the fragile material , of paper and wax, is strengthened by invisible

    threads, Manuèle studies the ora and fauna as the source of an inspiration for a common life

    where the link makes rampart, sets up itself as protective shield of a materialistic everyday life.

    If the installations of Manuèle Bernardi have a high poetic density, they contain in their heart a

    disturbing fragility. Attached to nylon threads, these little things icker happily on themselves,

    unaware of their meaning. Individually they are only the traces of a past life, of a manslaughter,

    together they reform a quivering ecosystem that seeks to protect its center. A new constellation

    around a visible or concealed star that brings back a form of life. e allegory does not stop there,

    Manuèle protects her installations of a sheet of transparent plexiglass which is reminiscent of the

    ozone layer. 

  • . 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.
  • . Jung Min Choi
    Jung Min Choi is a Korean artist, born in Seoul in 1973.
    Doctor in Plastic Arts, University of Paris VIII, Sorbonne.
    He settled down in France in 1999. In 2001,
    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.
    He had a solo show at Art Paris Art Fair in 2014, where the "Great Days" 2013,
    365 drawings were shown, along with major sculptures and paintings.
  • . Marco Cordero
    Born in 1969 in Roccavione (Cuneo), Italy.
    Marco Cordero graduated in Sculpture at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Torino,
    city where he continues to live and work.

    His work establishes a genealogic relationship to matter, undertaking a movement in which,
    from the library as a collective heritage, becomes the germ of sculptures that hold a material
    “reminiscence” value. The intervention on the written text in which he digs, profiles enigmatic
    shapes and forms, and sets a space in which the matter is thought as memory.  The book,
    though cut in a creative intention, remains idolized as an aesthetical, historical, cultural
    and divinatory object. This creative and aggressive gesture represents thus the nuclear e
    lement that makes explicit and overcomes the first meaning by opening a latent and potential semantic field.
    The hand of the artist gives way to the drawing that emerges from the stacked pages, showing
    the deficiency or inadequacy of writing to communicate properly, turning into an indecipherable
    text. Words stay readable and emerges from literary hidden references, simulating a horizon
    line; an excavated group of books brings to light a mountain landscape from which tracks of
    earth or charcoal traces, as a sort of memory of their future.
    Dialectic process between the materiality of heritage and his conceptual projection, Cordero
    undertakes then a hermeneutic of substance. He re-interprets and transforms this legacy
    in a renewed language, seizes the texts and their opened possibilities to perform an unveiling
    and concealing game, that enhances an archaeology of subject who confronts the matter.
  • . Nicolas Demeersman

    Photographer, Film Maker and Publicist. Born in 1978 at Seclin, France

    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. 

  • . Moustapha Diop

    Born in Dakar, Senegal (1984). He leaves and works between Aulnay and Auxerre.

    Through his painting Mouhamoudou Moustapha Diop makes the walls speak. We find them covered

    with cement, torn posters, painting. They are a means of communication, a silent lung that inspires

    urbanity and expires the imprint of the past.

    The artist erects these walls using cement pigments on canvas, paper or polystyrene, he experiences them.

    Playing with their symbolic. At once a rocky expression of a primitive society, they are also the representation

    of the boundary between private and public, the demarcation between the obstacle and freedom.

    Moustapha Diop is also known for his video work, which was presented at the Goethe Institute in Dakar and at

    the Dak’art Biennale in 2018.

  • . 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.
  • . 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.

  • . David Gouny


    Self made man since 1970

    Liposucting School Of Fat

    King Size Institute Of Technology


    In 2003 David is called out by a scientific study realized in the United States which proves that when we see in a regular way persons in overweight, we increase by 40 % the risk of finding      oneself in overweight. We would thus become obese by «habitus».

    Shocked by these societal conclusions, David begins a work of reflection on the overweithness by «contamination». He begins to paint big women in a style which he will name«sausage». He questions by this the society which rejects the difference and would move towards a «standard by contamination».

    These big women soon invade the urban space, in a procession of positions inspired by the mythical scenes of the cinematographic art or of the art as such

    Then David turns to objects symptoms and causes of these excesses, the permanent «king size». Today, the «Fat virus» of David takes the shape of objects sewn by hand with vinyl fabrics, contaminating the references of the consumer society, those who are brought to disappear gobbled up by the modernization and those who bury us by their omnipresence.

  • . 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."

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.
  • . Yanne Kintgen
  • . Cyril Le Van
    " The men are born free and equal and it is the last time when they are him. "

  • . Lino Lago

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.

    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».

    a degree in fashion design, she began art studies specialized in textile design

    and then developed skills as an embroiderer, weaver and feather-worker.


    The ancestral gestures were patiently passed on to her in the workshop. She

    ater chose a course combining visual arts at the Sorbonne with classes at the

    School of the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, which sealed her

    desire to master the creation of the most sophisticated materials, together

    with the fundamental questions of visual art.

    From 2000, she gained experience in prestigious haute couture workshops as  

    Chanel, Dior, Emmanuel Ungaro, Prada, etc. In 2010 she decided to devote

    and San Francisco. The work MICHELINE (from the series MY LOVELY BONES) 

    joined the permanent collection of the Dallas Museum of Art in 2012.

    solo exhibition to her work: “HER GARDEN”.

    2015 was marked by a series of collaborations with Massaro (Chanel’s custom-made

    shoes department). They gave rise to SUKI, EVE, DAPHNE and Mademoiselle IVES.

    The alchemy that developed between the artist, the bootmaker of the Rue de la Paix

  • . 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.

  • . François Nouguiès
    François Nouguiès was born in 1969 in Montpellier.
    He lives and works in Sofia, Bulgaria.
    Artist and film-maker, his videos are linked to performances and more exactly to the realization
    of social experiences. His plastic researchs are articulated around new interpretations of known
    pictures or movies: it aims at questioning the spectator about his own investment in the creation.
    The ideas of artifice and remake are recurrent in François Nouguiès's works, he plays to replace
    the spectator in the center of the reflection and of the action …
  • . René Romero Schuler
  • . 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.
    His photos reveal a new stage of his work : a game with the lights of the city, the hollow of the shadows, the ghost
    tracks of buildings and urban furniture.
  • . Xavier Somers

    Xavier Somers was born in 1970 in a town of Bruges, in Belgium. As a passionate traveler,

    Xavier wandered around across the world, before resettling in his native Belgium. The art

    he makes is inspired by the town he lives in, by its charming medieval atmosphere and

    architecture. Somers’ unique sculptural work emerges from the feelings and perception

    he experiences during his city walks and urban exploration.

    The style of Xavier Somers’ exquisite art is filled with elements of mechanics and gear

    wheeks,resembling the aesthetics of steampunk genre, inspired by 19th century

    steam-powered machinery. Somers successfully merges mechanical parts with classical

    Greek sculptures of gods and goddesses, creating a unique combination of mythology

    and modern age. Made out of clockwork parts and real bird bones and skeletons, the

    sculptures embody creatures and palaces constructed in Xavier’s highly creative,

    imaginative and vivid world.

    At the same time beautiful and terrifying, Xavier Somers’ assembled sculptures express

    feelings of emptiness and wandering, questioning the briefness of life and certainty of death.

    Xavier Somers lives and creates in Bruges, Belgium

  • . Alexia Tailleur
    Artist and photographer born in 1983 in Orleans, France, Alexia
    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.
    Her creation enhances private stories. Her subjects, anonymous or not, reflect her personal
    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.
  • . 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.
  • . Andreas Von Gehr
    Andreas Von Gehr was born in Santiago, Chile, in 1972, where he studied art and obtained a degree in fine arts.
    Since the beginning of his career, he has received awards such as the Philips Art Award for Young Talents in 2000 or was noticed by his presence as the only representative of Chile at the Japanese Triennial of Osaka the same year. Most recently, he has been awarded the GZ-ArtBasel Art Fair International Showartists Award, as well as the International Artists Wanted Award.
    The work of Andreas Von Gehr questions the image and legitimacy of traditional artistic disciplines by creating a hybridization between painting, photography and digital resources. The artist provokes a fragmentation-deconstruction of the image which, after a process of assimilation, recomposes and gives a new meaning in order to invite the spectator to rethink all that constitutes his environment.
    The representation of the landscape concerns the place where Andréas mixes his experience and his personal reflections in the political and social context of his country, Chile.
