Floriane Lisowski
Rêve de Liberté à Paris, Aquarium series, 2020


Acrylic and resin on aluminium print, 180 x 90 cm and 140x70 cm, unique editions
Presented by Ange Monnoyeur Gallery - France
 

Floriane Lisowski, of Polish origin, grew up surrounded by art, with an artist-painter mother who transmitted her passion for images to her. She is an explorer of life, passionate about the great spaces and encounters with the beyond. She travels the four corners of the world to appease her thirst for adventure, in search of "true" emotions. Each time she travels, she immerses herself in the local life and culture, always being as close as possible to the people she meets.

"My need to escape is often stronger than my reason and art allows me to express this need for freedom. For me, fish embodies freedom, colours and lightness. It evolves in a world between reality and fantasy... In some countries it is a symbol of luck, longevity and success. It represents strength and perseverance! "Floriane Lisowski

Natalia Poniatowska
Conservation status: Vulnerable, Humanature series, 2018


Inkjet print on baryta paper, 115x76 cm, edition of 8
Presented by The Spaceless Gallery
 

Flirting with documentary photography and inspired by her native Poland, photographer Natalia Poniatowska explores everyday life and the modern condition, evoking issues of globalization and longing with each composition.

In the age of constant questioning of the connection between humans and nature, the series Humanature came as a subconscious selection of images that represent the current mood of such conversations. Through the images that were created in different places and environments, it delivers the cohesive image of our relationship with the world, both natural and man-made. Humanature does not deliver an answer or points towards a certain issue, but rather stays ambiguous in its outlook and leaves the interpretation to the spectator.

Natalia Poniatowska
Summer's 6th Birthday Party, Celebrations series, 2017


Digital print, 60x40 cm, edition of 10
Presented by The Spaceless Gallery
 

Natalia Poniatowska grew up in the industrial environment of the Silesian region in the Southern part of Poland (Bytom) and after 7 years in Scotland, she recently moved to Warsaw, Poland.

"Celebrations" is a project that captures the empty corners of busy gatherings where no one dances, creating an almost empty theatre set. Natalia states that, "what fascinated me and deeply intrigued was to move the camera away by a frame and capture the shift and contrast with what was surrounded me. My approach to picture making is to present ordinary, non-idealised, never staged reality. Such practice is the formulation of interest in things as they are. By using only one lens which is the most similar to a human field of view, I am capturing the moments and non-moments that drag my attention. I am a sentimental and nostalgic artist and the camera is the best tool to anchor oneself to memories and emotions that are constantly fleeting.”

The result being to make one doubt what is absolute and perceived.

Through thousands of years of history, the Korean people’s hopes and aspirations and all the hardships and sufferance have been witnessed by the country’s most treasured temples. Through his series “Emptiness”, Zu Do Yang highlights the perpetual changes witnessed by history yet the constant represented by these historical structures. His existential reflection on how one views the world is ever so present in this series. In Emptiness I, Zu Do Yang, through his handmade pinhole camera photographs Haeinsa, one of the most important Buddhist temples in South Korea. One can barely recognise the structure itself, the only discernible characteristic being the intricate colour combinations. Zu Do Yang wishes to liberate the viewer of his perception of the ideal hence almost achieving a state of enlightenment.

As Lee explains: "A metaphorical space is created here whereby the self-circulative vital energy of nature is made visible through the ruins recovered by an ever self-generative nature"

Her visual stories are shared between photography, graphic art and scenography in a common dependence.

"Sometimes nature is shadow, sometimes nature is light... Through the emotions that nature communicates to me, a botanical register has emerged that I have chosen to call En miroirs (in mirrors in english), a story of sweet and ferocious plants. This series illustrates the opposite conditions of plants, their different state of mind, which join together and face each other." Anne-Marie Arbefeuille

"The superimposition of elements that are not supposed to coexist leads to the expression of unreadable feelings. The mixing of images in my work goes beyond the limits of simple reproduction and seeks to represent an artistic space where the aura blends with the agora, illustrating the contradictions that characterize our social space. The image, at first sight indescribable, can finally be interpreted intuitively. Through my works, I try to tell the many stories that exist at the border between reality and imagination."

Victoire d’Harcourt
Rendez-vous à l'infini, 2019


Digital photography and acrylic painting, framed, 110x146 cm, unique edition
Presented by Ange Monnoyeur Gallery - France
 

Victoire d'Harcourt has always been interested in open space urbanism, design and architecture. She takes pleasure in reinterpreting museums, beaches and all kinds of large areas where people go to meet themselves. As a painter and photographer, she strives to transgress reality. From a black and white photo that she creates and develops herself, Victoire d'Harcourt recomposes her picture using large planes of colour. The artist's work is a dialogue between abstraction and the figurative. From a world that seems very real, Victoire d'Harcourt makes us fall into an ambivalent world where existential questions are asked, however without ever getting an answer.

"Her photographs of real landscapes, transcended by painted elements, have a sobriety irradiated with an inner and supernatural light that transports us into another dimension, where one might look for his inner self…” Ange Monnoyeur

Through this series, I tried to capture their presence.” Ehira Tatsunori

Based in Seoul, South Korea, Lee Jung Hoon is an artist active in various fields, but above all in photography and the visual arts. He has exhibited his work in numerous solo and group shows. He also taught photography and drawing at university level and directed art projects in various companies.

"The superimposition of elements that are not supposed to coexist leads to the expression of unreadable feelings. The mixing of images in my work goes beyond the limits of simple reproduction and seeks to represent an artistic space where the aura blends with the agora, illustrating the contradictions that characterize our social space. The image, at first sight indescribable, can finally be interpreted intuitively. Through my works, I try to tell the many stories that exist at the border between reality and imagination."

Atala & I, 2, Chateaubriand, Ingres & I series, 2019


Calligraphy on pigment inkjet print, 36x45 cm, unique edition
Presented by KG+ - Japan
 

Armelle Kergall is a French photographer, currently based in Tokyo. Graduated from the École Supérieur d’Arts Graphiques with honours, she won the “Bourse du Talent Portrait” in 2013 with her Anatomy of a French Family series. She exhibited her work several times most notably in 2019 at fotofever paris and at the Kyoto based festival KG+, where she was awarded with the Public Award Grand-Prix.

Armelle Kergall’ series Chateaubriand, Ingres & I come from an investigation into her family tree and the photographic archives of her grandfather. Her 7 generations ancestors, the Stamaty family, met François-René de Chateaubriand, the famous romantic writer, back in the 19th century. Waiting for their first born, Constantin and Nanine Stamaty asked Chateaubriand to become their daughter’s godfather and name her. Inspired by one of his heroines, he gave her the name Atala. Later, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres became Atala’s painting master but also her foster father at Constantin’s death in 1817.

“All the self-portraits I present here retake the member’s family pose in Ingres’s drawing “La famille Stamaty”. The passage written on the pictures, is an excerpt from Atala, the novel of Chateaubriand. The heroine on the verge of death, explains to her loved one the reason for her suicide.” Armelle Kergall

She offers the viewer the chance to meditate on notions like the endurance of life through the inexorable passage of time and to contemplate more ethereal concepts like beauty and calmness despite the slow downfall of past dreams.

“This was a huge imposing castle in the middle of the countryside - and on my second attempt and as the last location of the whole trip, I was desperate to get inside. Luckily it went without a hitch and this was one of the last rooms I came across. I wanted to capture the whole scene - the beautiful grand hall with the antique furniture left behind, the delicate marble sculpture, the portraits on the wall giving a glimpse of the former lives of the place and a hot afternoon sun pouring through the portals on both sides was a magical moment.” Gina Soden

Victoire d’Harcourt
Enter the Dream, 2019


Digital photography and acrylic painting, 110x146 cm, unique edition
Presented by Ange Monnoyeur Gallery - France
 


Victoire d'Harcourt has always been interested in open space urbanism, design and architecture. She takes pleasure in reinterpreting museums, beaches and all kinds of large areas where people go to meet themselves. As a painter and photographer, she strives to transgress reality. From a black and white photo that she creates and develops herself, Victoire d'Harcourt recomposes her picture using large planes of colour. The artist's work is a dialogue between abstraction and the figurative. From a world that seems very real, Victoire d'Harcourt makes us fall into an ambivalent world where existential questions are asked, however without ever getting an answer.

"Her photographs of real landscapes, transcended by painted elements, have a sobriety irradiated with an inner and supernatural light that transports us into another dimension, where one might look for his inner self…” Ange Monnoyeur

Chromogenic print laminated on aluminium, framed with shadow box and black aluminium rod, 40x40 cm and 80x80 cm, edition of 20
Presented by Signatures Gallery - France
 

Joanna Tarlet Gauteur was born in 1974, she lives and works in Paris. Member of the Picturetank agency from 2006 to 2017, she participated in the creation of the collective "Le Carton" in 2004 and worked there until 2012. Her series take form of novels, photographic books and she even adapts them into music. Her profound and unusual photography is collected by many private buyers, but also finds its place in magazines and commercial campaigns.

Joanna Tarlet Gauteur's photographic work is the reflection of an imaginary world where her anxieties, fears and everything she cannot explain are concentrated: love, passion, melancholy, the fragile beauty of a tormented world. Photographing her emotions means shouting, fighting and releasing small particles of happiness. It is above all a utopian and illusory search for ataraxy. Here, with a foggy mind, the young girl walks, a sleight of hand hidden in her hatbox, she follows the meanders of her fantasies.

Fine Art print laminated on dibond, aluminium frame on the back, 50x67 cm, edition of 5
Presented by Ange Monnoyeur Gallery - France
 

Anne-Marie Arbefeuille has always presented a photographic work in harmony with the planet. Curious about these moments of light and shadow, careful to the magnificent textures of nature, she invites us to immerse ourselves in a landscape journey made of minerals, plants, air and the colours of time. Her visual stories are shared between photography, graphic art and scenography in a common dependence.

"In this explosive colour of the first mornings of the world, it is a fantasised landscape that arises spontaneously. Subjected to our goodwill for too long, it emancipates itself from our domination to break with the initial order of the world. Having suffered our assaults, our constraints, our manipulations, it now enters with force into our ordinary worlds and inflicts on us a vengeance made of beauty and strangeness."

MAYAA 14, Japan Diaries series, 2013-2020


Archival pigment luxury baryta print, 50,8x76,2 cm, edition of 8
Presented by ArtYard Gallery - Germany
 

The internationnally recognised artist duo Formento + Formento have come a long way in a short time, but they have shown that they live for the journey and it will continue, leading wherever it takes them. They are professional travelers, bringing expertise, imagination and an almost alien gift for absorbing and rendering the spirit of a time and place.

Avid Japonophiles, Formento + Formento took these highly staged and melodramatic images in Japan. They conjure many references: 1950s Japanese cinema, the photographs of Nobuyoshi Araki, Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, and the erotic imagery of Ero Guro paintings. As outside observers, Formento + Formento's stylised images explore the dichotomies that embody modern Japan, blurring the aesthetics between tradition and the ultra-modern, fantasy and reality. The captivating tableaux exude a sense of tension, melancholy, and a quiet unease. Each image from the series Japan Diaries exists as if it were a still taken from a noir Japanese film, each solitary figure yearning for something unknown.

Diego Dominici is an Italian photographer. He lives and works in Turin. Aesthetics is the point of departure and arrival of his artistic research. His pictures always hide stories and deep narratives. Describing a work by Diego Dominici means immersing oneself in the human psyche and digging into the most intimate abysses of the unconscious.

In the Atman series, the fabric constitutes a new frontier, through which the essence of the individual manifests itself, changing its shape, creating new surfaces and movement between light and shadow. The new forms created by the subject's movement under his new skin reveal his determination, such as the splitting of the chrysalis, revealing a new self.

"These images, of moments of life of my loved ones, seem more real to me than reality. The closeness that photography requires, when capturing these moments, gives them the strength of a continuous memory. I have no childhood memories. Every time I think I have one, I end up discovering that it is a photograph made by my father or uncle. This observation, far from disturbing me, is part of my research for traces." Marie Rameau

Natalia Poniatowska grew up in the industrial environment of the Silesian region in the Southern part of Poland (Bytom) and after 7 years in Scotland, she recently moved to Warsaw, Poland.

"Celebrations" is a project that captures the empty corners of busy gatherings where no one dances, creating an almost empty theatre set. Natalia states that, "what fascinated me and deeply intrigued was to move the camera away by a frame and capture the shift and contrast with what was surrounded me. My approach to picture making is to present ordinary, non-idealised, never staged reality. Such practice is the formulation of interest in things as they are. By using only one lens which is the most similar to a human field of view, I am capturing the moments and non-moments that drag my attention. I am a sentimental and nostalgic artist and the camera is the best tool to anchor oneself to memories and emotions that are constantly fleeting.”

Stefano Degli Esposti was born in Casalecchio di Reno in 1958 and currently lives and works in Sasso Marconi, Italy. He exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, festivals and at MIA Photo Fair in Milan in 2017. The photographic artworks of “Citypatterns” series, taken between 2013 and 2018, are a research on the relationship between the figurative and abstraction conducted through the study of the metropolitan skyline.

“Beauty is wherever your eye can discover it or create it through elements suitable to your feelings, such as to impress and convey emotions to the ones that views your photographs. Even in a cold styled environment like a metropolitan area, a “forest of skyscraper” offers interesting textures and patterns, basically consisting of simple components such as lines and colours, but also making it possible to compose abstract pictures that inspires one's imagination, on top of the pleasure of an beautiful sight. Visiting the important cities worldwide gave me the extraordinary chance to explore my feelings, by playing spontaneously with my own imagination.” Stefano Degli Esposti

"These photos touch me very much because they are a visual witness to my personal history. These places crossed and apprehended thousands of times, these actors of life forever frozen in a cinematic moment, are as many keys to my inner mode, as they are pieces belonging to this immense property that is the world.
Even today, while taking the subway, I watched the train arrive in the station and I was struck by the difference in rendering with my photos. When I take a photo I add a part of myself to it by selecting a certain angle, a certain contrast and by leaving room for luck, that will make or break the shot. Everything remains uncertain until the development, then until the final print." Romain Battaglia

Lee Gun Young is a Korean artist, renowned through numerous exhibitions and awards in South Korea, including participation in the 2016 BMW Photo Space and sponsorship of the Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture. It has also been exhibited at the Lishui and Yixian Photography Festivals in China, as well as at PHOTOVILLE in New York in 2016 and 2019.

In his The White Shaded Backyard series, Lee Gun Young's interest lies in the concept of "relationships", between individuals and their environment. The space seen in this series has been deserted. This space originally only inhabited by nature, has become a discarded area by the human act of construction and then abandonment. Through his images, Lee intertwines the present, the past and perhaps even the future. As Lee explains: "A metaphorical space is created here whereby the self-circulative vital energy of nature is made visible through the ruins recovered by an ever self-generative nature"

Intimacy Bench, Moments I Never Showed You series, 2018


35mm black & white print on natural glossy silver paper, 68 x 98cm, edition of 5 with 1 AP
Presented by The Spaceless Gallery
 

Natalia Poniatowska grew up in the industrial environment of the Silesian region in the Southern part of Poland (Bytom) and after 7 years in Scotland, she recently moved to Warsaw, Poland. Flirting with documentary photography and inspired by her native Poland, Natalia Poniatowska explores everyday life and the modern condition, evoking issues of globalization and longing with each composition. Balancing candid photography without staging, Natalia’s raw portraits invite the viewer into strikingly realist environments, anchoring the present into the field of sense memory.

The Moments I Have Never Shown You series, by capturing spontaneous moments, wider questions arise about photography as a medium and the act of observation itself. It is an invitation to notice unexpected connections and conversations.

Zu Do Yang
Emptiness I, Emptiness series, 2019


C-print, 100x200 cm, edition of 5
Presented by MUG Publishing - South Korea
 

Zu Do Yang focuses on the fundamental question of how one looks at the world. He has studied at length how perspective changes through the lens of each photographer hence the differences that arises. Zu Do Yang believes that art is a unique way of looking at things, disrupting our sense and familiarity. He fabricates pinhole cameras to use for his own works, and also plays with colours. The result being to make one doubt what is absolute and perceived.

Through thousands of years of history, the Korean people’s hopes and aspirations and all the hardships and sufferance have been witnessed by the country’s most treasured temples. Through his series “Emptiness”, Zu Do Yang highlights the perpetual changes witnessed by history yet the constant represented by these historical structures. His existential reflexion on how one views the world is ever so present in this series. In Emptiness I, Zu Do Yang, through his handmade pinhole camera photographs Jeonggakwon, Korean Buddhist temple in Dongguk University in Seoul. One can barely recognise the structure itself, the only discernible characteristic being the intricate colour combinations. Zu DoYang wishes to liberate the viewer of his perception of the ideal hence almost achieving a state of enlightenment.

Chih-Chien Wang
Green Cloth #4, 2007


Inkjet digital print, 101.6x127 cm, edition of 7
Presented by Pierre-François Ouellette Art Contemporain - Canada
 


"My work focuses on the everyday experience. I use photography and video to examine texture, smell or existence of life, and, accompanying with sensibility, I also express my concern about urban environment and cultural differentiation. These concerns sometimes resemble my understanding about people, sometimes reflect the space which I live in, and sometimes answer my doubt about the self. The intrigued signal happens so often that it seems normal to be ignored; however, once it opens up the awareness, the magic of recognition flows." Chih-Chien Wang

Andrea Tirindelli
Beyond the Visible of Nature, 2017-2019


Fine Art print on cotton paper, 70x100 cm, edition of 5
Presented by MADE4ART - Italy
 


Andrea Tirindelli was born in Cremona in 1961, where he currently lives and works. The photographic works of the series Beyond the Visible of Nature created between 2017 and 2019 are characterized by the presence of a foreign element, the reflection of an image on a mirror, inside a natural context of great aesthetic purity and harmony. The photographs open our eyes to a new perspective and seem to want to remember us the multiple forms of nature are in communication with each other and at the same time parts of a single and inseparable unity.

Formento + Formento
HYSTERIA XI, Hysteria series, 2015-2017


Digital print, 80x53 cm, edition of 22
Presented by ArtYard Gallery - Germany
 

Formento + Formento are known for their inventive and stylised photographs that explore the disturbing, revealing double-edged allegories with an underlying lyricism. Using conceptually playful and psychologically evocative staging, the strange sensuality of their style reveals a fascination with both fiction and reality.

The images in the Hysteria series are inspired by post-war America. At a time when the United States is both at the peak of its power and on the verge of losing control. Consumer society, the domination of pop culture or social struggles are subjects that still resonate with our times.
