  • . 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.
  • . 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.
     
    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.

  • . 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.

    "I'm in the middle.
    I'm not what I was
    and I am not yet what I will be.
    An interstice in temporal and physical suspension. "
                                                              
    "The book of intranquility" by Fernando Pessoa
     
    "It is precisely this between two that interests me.
    This mental and physical state with impalpable outlines,
    a state of floating on the frontiers of reason,
    "from loss to grace", as Georges Bataille says,
    let us have the courage to imagine.
     
    If the crossing of concerns questions the state of affairs,
    it encourages us to welcome and stimulate our internal potential for change.
    It is after a moment of floating, that the metamorphosis operates.
    The assumed dizziness of our intranquility then becomes a promise.
     
    Videos and photos express the state of man in his precariousness.
    To not know where to be, to want to disappear,
    to repeat gestures without sense, are all visible manifestations.
    I am working on the process of metamorphosis,
    more precisely on this suspended time, just before the moulting.

  • . 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». 

  • . Mireille Robbe

    The work of Mireille Robbe is a research on herself through her suitcase in Maurice

    Van Saene’s painting workshop in Saint Luc - Brussels, reading, intuition, ...

    In 2012, one of her works of the V.I.T.R.I.O.L. series sent her on the path of hidden

    symbols, which led her to Alchemy (and C.G. Jung) or, in simple terms, to the philosophy

    of nature, of the universe. An inexhaustible source of information and inspiration.

    She integrates this symbolism and philosophy only in her way of thinking and not in

    the first visual layer of her works.
    You will realize that all of her concepts are interconnected, even if they look different.

    This visual difference is partly explainable by the fact that the chosen medium is a function

    of the concept and not vice versa.

    The common thread in her work is to show us the ingenuity of nature, allow us to reflect

    about details that escape us because of their so-called obviousness.

    Mireille Robbe, 1962, Brussels. Lives and works in Louvain (Belgium).
