Holder of a degree in architecture, with a passion for models and utopic cities, through her work Juliette Rault puts on a miniature stage made-up stories about our relationship with religion, popular icons, death, sex and injustices of the world.
Very dramatic, these dioramas deal with serious topics with poetry, humor and false naivety – to better sugar the pill.
For her 139 art space exhibit, she decided to ”get out of her little boxes” to occupy the big case. A transition. Her last stay in London inspired the creation of ”White Riot”, in reference to a Clash song. This immaculate white installation seems very peaceful and discreet at first, but explodes at night.
In London, the artist was seduced by the gap, the crack between the official British society and the profuse alternative culture, which seems to approach some freedom. Freedom of expression, at least.
This counterculture is bubbling under the eye of the Queen, world icon, mother figure, both omnipresent and ghost-like, stuck in her official (ceremonial) role. To a little French girl, this role looks both obsolete and very mysterious.

Piotr Hanzelewicz (Poland, 1978) living in Italy He made several studies and many jobs. Hanzelewicz works on the border that separates transparency from opacity aesthetically as semantically. The raw materials used are idiomatic expressions, habits, conventions. The artistic investigation therefore focused on levels of ambiguity, a hidden meaning, a “double bottom”, a secret passage or a vox media, is a fertile ground to bring ambiguity to its extreme consequences or pointing to a climax or rather a redefinition aware of the significance of the ambiguous object.
If the word is central, it is always a real word, as an agent in shaping the vision of reality or of his perceping.
If reality is “called”, it is formed in a concrete form. Between transparency and opacity moves a disambiguation process that aims to clarify what is complicated, leaving the charm of complexity. While the raw materials lie in the language and its cultural sedimentation, the materials are most often ephemeral and delicate. Tracing papers, transparencies and chalcographic paper to translate opacity, transparency and seriality (where mass production is always strictly made of a recurrence of unique manual). Hanzelewicz works on concepts, relating them to spaces and their history, comparing them to their own experience. As a direct result often produces site-specific works and contest specifc.

About the artist:
Daniela Zuniga Arancibia was born in Valparaiso in Chile. After finishing her studies in Science, she moved to France and enrolled at ESACM Art School in Clermont-Ferrand. A year of international exchange in Italy and other travels have been a real influence in her work. Since 2015 she has lived in Marseille working in an art collective with 8 other artists. DZA’s work is usually concerned in the making of installations and sculptures but encompasses other media such as video, sound and performance. Working on the perpetuation of gestures as a binding process to the finitude of life, she approaches concepts such as incertitude and the multiplicity of reality, transforming them into a substrate to create aesthetic answers to questions from science and philosophy which stimulate her art practice. These unsettling questions haunt the artist, who tries to recreate new esoteric codes. Through totemic forces and forms, she attempts to exorcize these uncanny metaphysical queries. Baroque formal concepts are influences in the same way as classical concepts, and crisscross her work. The unity formed between perfection and imperfection, the sacred and the pagan guide her path.

And now, another route. This time diving between two points. Again an oblique movement, from up down and down up.
Time to sleep. Nobody work. Immersion!
Out of the Chunnel…
Time to open the eyes, take the bags, grab a coffee and search for good fish and chips.

Rowan Corkill / The Seeker
Rowan Corkill is a Scottish artist who has exhibited nationally and internationally with solo shows In the UK, Italy and Canada. He works within various artistic fields including sculpture, drawings, performance, photography, sound and taxidermy.
Corkill’s work is created from a deep ethnological fascination with various cultural, religious and occult beliefs, many of which are founded on a strong connection with nature. He uses his practice as a means to explore and examine endless belief systems, mythologies and ideologies created by mankind; questioning whether the modern world can learn from past ideas in order to regain our connection with nature and planet earth.

About the Artist
I am a 27 years old french multidisciplinary artist working mainly with the clay material in both visual art and craft fields.
(If any borders would be traced).
Essentially based on a 7 years learning process of chinese calligraphy from my early adolescence, my aestheticism followed then its footsteps by developing an abstract language with personal experiences and more largely Western societies codes.
Gradually structured on several mediums according to uneven financial possibilities, this language intuitively built to get its final complexity, turned to be very busy.
Really recently, thanks to several travels in Mexico and South America and helped by the clay’s work, I started to colour more and more intensively my artworks, while missing so much the daily light along my Winter’s times in Quebec.
This artwork is one of my answer to this recent life’s experience, capitalizing as well, the artist’s insecurity with the use of humble materials originally dedicated for kids.
By extension, I hope it highlights the benefit of networking and bring people closer, because this work has been visually very inspired by drawing with a friend, artist and mainly
