Renaud Brann

Renaud Brann

Brann Renaud was born in 1977 in Paris where he is presently living and working. He got his dnsap degree from Paris School of Fine Arts in 2004. He attended Montrouge and ‘November in Vitry’ exhibitions and then worked with the Trafic Gallery of Paris. He was awarded the Antoine Marin prize in 2007.
Since then he has attended, in France and in Europe, many exhibitions and fairs ( Slick, Art-Paris…), notably ‘A cent Mètres du Centre du Monde’ Contemporary Art Center in Perpignan, in 2015, around Pat Andrea.
‘I am currently working, as I have been doing so for ten years, working on reality filtered through the prism of poetry, of some mismatch specific to subjectivity, occasionally childlike, as far as it does not fit any dogma nor prejudice. First and foremost what matters is felt experience, which can be cruel and scathing, an experience meant to deliver what reality can genuinely offer us. I build on the images that come to me, I build again and again on them to bring my feeling to light. I create a painting which tells a story as much as it shows something.’

Rochard Arnaud

Rochard Arnaud

Arnaud Rochard was born in Saint Nazaire (France) in 1986. He lives and works in Brussels (Belgium).
Graduated from the EESAB Quimper (France) in 2010, his work is exhibited in Germany, Belgium and France.

“Already in my first year at the École supérieure d’art de Quimper, I became fascinated by the art of engraving,” says the Breton-born artist, who first spent one year in Brussels as an Erasmus exchange student, before he got lost permanently in the multi-layered cultural playground where, among other things, he helped the enticing art platform Le Kabinet to surface from the underground. “Partly because of the artisanal, tactile work with wood and metal. But also because of the fact that you work in different stages : drawing, making a matrix, inking, printing, etc. Even once you have mastered all of these techniques, there are still moments when unexpected variations occur. Trying to think through and elicit these accidental sparks is one of the most exciting things about this work.”

Rondard Sandrine

Rondard Sandrine

Graduated from L'École Nationale d' Art de Cergy Pontoise and from L'École Nationale des Beaux Arts de Dijon, Sandrine Rondard was born in 1966. She lives and works in Montreuil and Paris.

The landscape is in the current work of Sandrine Rondard, the setting, the theatrical set of a history in suspense where nature, sometimes threatening, sometimes protective plays a preponderant role. A nature that unfolds its mystery around small actors, indifferent witnesses or new heroes of an interrupted cinematographic narration, "to be continued" by the viewer.
Drama latent or fairy tales, the artist proposes the beginning of a narrative that goes along with the strange and the real, and in which mixes his own photos, literature, cinema, the history of art ... . And allows the viewer to summon his own imagination.

Roussopoulos Alexandra

Roussopoulos Alexandra

Alexandra Roussopoulos was born in Paris in 1969, and is of Swiss and Greek descent. Through painting, she explores the relationship among shape, color and space, and questions the physical and mental spaces she lives in.

She regularly collaborates in art projects and has participated to numerous artist residencies in Slovenia, Croatia, Algeria, Greece, Ireland, Spain and China. Each of these experiences has had a great impact on her artistic practice. The spatial displacement is always an occasion to rejuvenate her vision of her past and future.

Alexandra has participated in the activities of the APDV art center in Paris, which brings artistic action to the heart of government subsidized housing areas. She has organized and curated several exhibitions, Water and Dreams at the Kamchatka gallery in 2007, Mauvais Genre in collaboration with Isabel Duperray at a Moroccan gallery in St Nazaire in 2009 and Young Memories in episodique Gallery in Paris in 2015/2016.

Alexandra studied in England (Camberwell School of Arts) and Paris (École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts). She was awarded the visual arts prize of the René Liechti Foundation in Switzerland in 2010 and the "November in Vitry" painting prize in 2002.

She regularly participates in workshops in France and abroad (in France, at La Hear, Mulhouse and ESBA Le Mans and in China, the Academy of Fine Arts of China and the University of Fine Arts in Hangzhou).

Her work is present in a diversity of public collection such as the MAC VAL Museum (Vitry Sur Seine, France), in the Valais Cantonal Museums Contemporary Art Collection of the State of Valais, Switzerland and in the Lancy Art Collection of Contemporary Art, Switzerland.
