Miguel Rothschild thus mixes nails, pins or straws with obscure photographs, he perforates his images, to set up a double dimension. The diamond presented in the exhibition is part of this approach artistic. It represents this ambiguity between the wealth and violence present around the exploitation of this stone, as well as the paradox between its hardness and its apparent cracks.

Bruno Fontana develops an early interest in photography and architecture, and shapes his self-taught look. His work - which can almost be described as documentary - revolves around the representation of urban environments, landscapes, heritage, memory and our relationship to the territory. The typology is recurrent in his photographic work. It is the result of an elaborate protocol of shooting and methodical reflection. Bruno Fontana extracts the recurring forms of our urban landscape, collects and releases the invisible of our daily life, which it presents in the form of photographic plates. His photos are repeated with subtle variations, allowing the staff and the human to pierce through an appearance of uniformity. Thus, Bruno Fontana is also in a historical step trying to fix the forms of everyday life that constitute our living environment. Bruno Fontana combines a poetic and scientific approach of the world: each element he photographs refers to a whole and speaks of the human, although it never appears on the film.

Thibault Brunet plays with the coded genres of photography and questions the relationship with virtuality in a society where the world tends to be fully digitized. A graduate of ENSBA in Nîmes, Thibault traveled through virtual worlds with his camera looking for images, which he exhibited at reGeneration2 (2011), at the Month of Photography in Paris, Berlin and Vienna (2012 ) and Talents Foam (2013).
Thibault is part of the collective project, France (s) Territoires Liquides whose work is presented during the 2015 Lyon Biennale and the 2017 BnF. His work is also present in prestigious collections such as the National Library of France (BnF), the Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne and the Frac Languedoc Roussillon.

Caroline Delieutraz uses abundant materials in our information society: images and other data that, without qualms, circulate in the flow of global electronic networks. The origin of these data, their conditions of appearance in the public space - Internet included -, their exploitation, their successive transformations and re-uses, their death and their rebirth are at the center of his work. On a daily basis, Caroline Delieutraz collects all kinds of materials available on the web, to manipulate and occupy, in her own way, this volatile world in perpetual motion. If it perpetuates what could be likened to the erasure of the "original", a relative notion in the world of copy-and-paste, it is not a question of either denying the origin of the data and the work done. by others. On the contrary, the direct provenance of the images is an integral, significant part of the work.

Represented by the Anouk Le Bourdiec Gallery, Paris.
Jean-Baptiste Perrot physically converts digital imagery into matter (ink, pencil, paint). More specifically, the malfunctions of new technologies are the basis of his work, causing him to integrate into his creations computer errors, bugs and other "glitches" that disrupt digital iconography. He appropriates them as revealing unexpected spaces of freedom in a digital world where everything is coded, standardized, thought for a predefined goal, where the "zero defect" is supposed to be in order.
Reinterpreted in the material, a certain form of reality takes back its rights in this virtual world. It is in this breach that his questions about free will take shape. Are we free? On the other hand, are we the subjects of an overdetermination with inalienable constraints?
Born in 1986 in L'Arbesle. Lives and works in Lyon.
Graduated in photography from the Condé de Lyon school (2010), Zacharie Gaudrillot-Roy is positioned as a spectator of a distant world. A wandering stranger in what could be perceived as a false decoration, he confronts himself on the surface of things to question the unknown and the idea of emptiness, his look translating a loss of control over reality.

Sissi Farassat was born in Tehran in 1969 where she spent part of her childhood before moving to Vienna in 1978. His life shapes his creations, between Persian and Western culture. The artist transforms objects of everyday life into symbols of more fanciful aspect identity, expanding his photographs with glitter and flashy and colorful materials.

As often in his work, through the medium of photography, photomontage or collaborations, Joachim Biehler captures a reference, an inheritance, a work. He is truly part of a history of contemporary art and claims his quotes and affiliations. Lightness, humor, derision, complicities, fantasy even, characterize his work, which focuses on issues nevertheless central. Because, as it underlies common representations, the history of art has contributed to the imposition of models, born in the past and continuing to survive. It is time that art foils the models it has imposed to suggest others, freer and more open.

Represented by Galerie Goutal, Aix-en-Provence.
For the past ten years, Philippe Calandre's work has revolved around architecture and, more recently, utopia. These utopias subtly echo a whole literary, architectural and cinematographic culture. We think in particular of Thomas More, founder of the concept of utopia in the sixteenth century, the city of Babel Fritz Lang in the film Metropolis and the futuristic creations of the architect Antonio Sant'Elia.

Placing an amused and critical look at technology, Bertrand Planes diverts the object from its utilitarian and commercial functions while maintaining its aesthetic qualities. In 1999, he creates and formalizes the clothing brand Emmaus with the support of the association. In 2004 he develops and launches a patent for an audio vibrator, a tool of several lives, one of which will be broadcast from the Gaité Lyrique Paris Last. In 2005 he creates DivX bonus in collaboration with the CNRS / LIMSI, one of the first manifestations of a movement known today as the Glitch Art. In 2006 it represents the France biennale of La Paz and proposes to bring back the sea to the Bolivians with the only technical means of the CNRS. Precursor of Video Mappinghe is developing BumpIt! a video projection system used in its facilities presented abroad. In 2007 he realizes the Life clock, a clock whose mechanism is slowed down 61 320 times so that the hour hand does not go around the dial until all the 84 years. In 2011, it travels from Moscow to Vladivostok by car: 13 500 km of documented performances performed as part of the Moscow Biennial.
