Élodie Huet (1973) lives and works in Brussels and in Paris. The work of French artist Elodie Huet is marked by simplicity and the economy of material and shape. She uses objects from daily life and places them into unexpected situations, giving each a voice through sensitive experiences. However, this quest to essentiality arises from an ironic creation, an initial illusion. This intentional decoy urges the artist to repeat precisely and to create “for nothing and forever“. It’s the difficult wisdom allowed by the absurd thoughts. Elodie Huet unites, questions, goes across, around, and tears down the globalized form and color codings made up by man for our domestic living. An object’s unsubstantiated aspect plays a major role. Implying the esthetic potential of every object, she jokingly plays with chain made materials and makes amusing links between philosophy and pragmatism. Moreover, she questions the place of art in our everyday lives. We need to choose if art is essential to man or merely entertainment, decoration or a commercial item. By finding out the cultural background that is hidden behind the notion we may have of an object and so trying to establish how an object would present itself to us clean, uninterpreted, Elodie Huet is on a mission to decipher the multiple points of view that man has on objects and materials. Élodie Huet has shown her work in solo exhibitions at Cheval Noir (Brussels), Maison des Arts Actuels des Chartreux (MAAC ‐ Brussels), Atelier 10B (La Plaine Saint‐Denis ‐ France), FRAC Nord‐Pas‐de‐Calais & Palais de l’Univers et des Sciences (Dunkerque ‐ France), Tetem (Enschede ‐ Netherlands) and Casino Luxembourg. Her group exhibitions include Été 78 (Brussels), MAAC (Brussels), CIAC (Bourbourg ‐ France) Galerie Jeune création (Paris), Galerie 22.48 m2 (Paris), Galerie Nathalie Obadia (Paris) and Galerie de Joaillerie Mazlo (Paris) among others.
Caroline Le Méhauté (1982) lives and Works in Brussels and in Toulouse. Caroline Le Méhauté reveals the close connections between culture, space and thought. She uses resources with many different levels of understanding. They unravel from form, the most noticeable, to materials, the more obvious. Then come the stages of scale and proportion. Finally we reach the range the farthest from our conscience, more profound and structural: ontology, topology and cosmology. Her works force us to turn around, to go around and namely to change the direction of our gaze and of our body and so multiplying our perspective and the movements of our mind. We are asked to move as planets. By capturing space, Caroline Le Méhauté, enthrusts thought in things whose simplicity of form does not necessarily match the simplicity of experience.
After a degree at École des Beaux‐arts de Marseille (2007), Caroline Le Méhauté created the solo exhibitions Cocotrope, at Château de Servières in Marseille (2011), Linked & Keep us posted at Bloc B in Dublin (2012).

In 2016, Caroline Le Méhauté exhibits at the residencies Exoplanète Lot at Maison des Arts Georges Pompidou and Usine Utopik.
Falcone (1990 ‐ Palermo) lives and Works in Brussels. Falcone’s work tries to establish a dialogue with the history of painting, investigating from inside all the aspects of this medium. Falcone analyses Painting reusing old masters’ works and coping the same technics to appropriating and distorting them in his owns painting process. Falcone’s paintings are a combination of old and modern technics, where ancient’s recipes are sometimes mixed with digital manipulations. Blurring the limits in his painting, Falcone creates unclear and confusing atmospheres, switching indistinctly between figuration and abstraction.
Falcone grew up in Milano where he obtained the diplôma at the Liceo Artistico di Brera in 2008 and he continued to study Art History at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera. In 2010 he moved to Brussels, where he attended the Painting course at ERG (École de Recherche Graphique). He finished his Master in Fine Arts in 2015 at KASK (Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten) in Gent, mentored by Narcisse Tordoir.
