Telluris I, by Noémie Goudal

Noémie Goudal's work explores the relationship between nature and the artificial, from science to the imaginary, from construction to invention. In Telluris, the artist works with ancient theories on the formation of the texture of the earth, in particular the mountains, which echo the theories of the celestial sphere.

Telluris X, by Noémie Goudal

With the creation of a collection combining photography and on-site installations, Noémie Goudal explores and interprets mountainous spaces, what they represent and what they inspire, from real geography to subjective projections.

Ho Chu Minh City, by Mathieu Asselin

Mathieu Asselin bears witness to the impact of Monsanto’s chemicals on the lives of thousands of people. His investigation began in Alabama and lasted for 5 years, eventually taking him to Vietnam, where the consequences of the use of Agent Orange, the herbicide used by the American army in combat between 1959 and 1971, is revealed to the public. Several generations of children have suffered from birth defects.
