Show September 3 – October 8, 2022.

Pierre Bellot uses various photographic sources or personal archives to create fictions where the composition obeys its own rules and creates a new meaning. By ridding each element of its original functionality, a formal game is established where the important thing becomes the path that crosses the work and associates each part to the whole. The image thus appears as the receptacle of inner visions. The subject is a bait, the starting point of an artificial structure in which the artist comes to trap the reality of the starting pattern.

The gallery is 30 years old in 2022! On this occasion, we share the archives of its first years, from 1992 to 1997.

In this excerpt from the documentary directed by Claudia Collao, Nina Childress traces the genesis of her portrait of Hedy Lamarr.

While she was one of the great stars of the golden age of Hollywood, Hedy Lamarr died in near anonymity in 2000, 42 years after her last film appearance. Revealed by her role in the sulphurous “Ecstasy”, by Gustav Machatý, the Austrian actress then worked with some of the most talented directors in Hollywood, such as King Vidor, Jacques Tourneur and Victor Fleming. This woman who was long ranked among the most beautiful women of her time was also a scientist with a formidable intuition, who laid the foundations of the wi-fi technique. This is one of the many surprises in this amazing biography of Hedy Lamarr.
