Mise à nu
Art creates a space in which thoughts and feelings can develop.
I see the exposure of an artist as an inner quest for our own truth. A journey elsewhere, a Homeric odyssey, an artistic psychoanalysis that pushes us to understand and accept who we are by opening ourselves to others.
I believe that the finality is not important because it is an end in itself - Like death, it ends a succession of moments which make the work timeless. This is partly why we have chosen with The Curators to highlight the construction of this virtual exhibition by writing a diary of an artist questioning other artists.
Single reading of a situation locks us into one version of the world while identifying multiple readings allows us to be in multiple places at the same time. When we realize our internal power to multiply by multiplying our views, the lines begin to draw geometric figures in which our mind can afford to swim.
Complexity is not a wall of difficulties in front of us, but a gigantic door giving us access to infinity. I also have this conviction that music inspires speech. She ties the words together and gives them a dance floor to flourish. This is why the music was present throughout this process of creation around the subject - To be perfectly honest in the process, I think it is important to have this sound dimension enveloping the visual elements offered. The transparency of an artist allows anyone with enough curiosity to be able to cross that door to elsewhere and a world of nuances. Have a nice trip.

Jordane Saget is a chalk artist who roams the streets of Paris to draw his arabesques on the ground or on the walls. His wavy chalk lines have gradually established a dialogue with the inhabitants, to become today one of the markers of Parisian street-art.
"I see my lines as a kind of DNA, like human beings all made of the same thing and yet all different. In this respect they still surprise me."

Anna Mond is the mastermind behind the FANTASTICAL BEINGS, an unknown specy of half human – half reptile creatures, with green or blue skin, big eyes and small nostrils.It’s impossible to say if they’re friendly or crazy, funny or dangerous, weird or just normal.
Through the FANTASTICAL BEINGS, Anna questions our time with her artful sense of humour. A wonderful, colorful and powerful rallying cry for more honesty and authenticity.
A journey through archetypes, visions, and nightmares of the childhood.Attracted by the most hidden parts of human nature, it descends in its depths and search of the original figures.Emanuele Tozzoli lives his art as a deep path of openness and knowledge, investigating the subtle nature of the artistic composition.With an instinctive and visceral workflow, it lets loose what comes from the unconscious, using a recurring symbology.Each work is the result of a primitive flow where each painting becomes the materialization of a dreamlike and extravagant interior world.
Born 1981 in France, I pursue a creative path that has led me from experimental music through the martial arts of Japan to the painter’s canvas. I first studied digital arts and musical composition at Paris University, and took part in several avant-garde musical projects during those years.In 2006 I decided to move to Japan and immerse myself in martial arts. I studied several modern Budō and classical fighting styles, and achieved proficiency in the production and repair of Japanese armors. I wrote several articles and books on the topic of martial arts and released two music albums with Japanese shakuhachi player, Sabu Orimo: Sphères and Kamakura Jūnisō. For several years I also studied ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement), and monshō gaku, the Japanese heraldic tradition.In 2010, I started to experiment and mix diverse set of skills on the canvas. My works now revolve mainly around the theme of mazes and labyrinths and have been exhibited internationally in North America, Europe and Asia since 2014.

His compositions depict a clever play between line, shape, shadow, and colour.Apart from photography, Clemente is an environmental engineer working on sustainable development projects. For him, photography is a way to manifest his creativity and communicating himself, offering a different vision of what he thinks is harmonious and beautiful. He approaches architecture and space in an artistic manner, rather than the classical and technical way of photographing architecture.
