"Olivier Garraud and Elsa Tomkowiak" in April 22nd-June 3rd, 2018

Through a work of drawings and sculptures, playing with the visual contrasts (black/white), and audacious slogans, Olivier Garraud diverts the symbols of our modern world in a dynamics of resistance. Elsa Tomkowiak maintains with the color a passionate report. She reinvents the color in installations, sculptures … in defiance of all the dogmae and in defiance of all the treaties which we saw fit to establish in the course of ages.

"Jérémy Gobé" in June 30th-September 2nd, 2018

Organic, harmonious and accurate at the same time, Jérémy Gobé's sculptures make the material be reborn. His creations are born according to the meetings which he makes, in the course of which he gets a history to tell it otherwise or holds a material (wool, plaster, coral …) to make it live again in a poetic way. Through a mainly textile work, he treats, sculpture, sublimates the fabric to restore him a certain nobility.

"Laurent Millet" in October 7th - November 18th 2018

Photographer and plastics technician, Laurent Millet composes the chapters of an imaginary encyclopedia, populated with objects which he builds then photographs. He explores techniques (the ambrotype, the cyanotype, the camera, the digital technology) in the service of the poetry. " The drawing, the landscape, the movement, the architecture and the body structure its work. He highlights a humble and delicate practice where the fragility, the sincerity and the fervour of the childhood are refreshed for the benefit of a reflection where poetry, philosophy and image interact.
