Camille and Jimmy's works have certain colors, textures and contours in common. They share the same view of the vulnerability of bodies, as well as their inclination to inflict violence. The two artists meet at this place: on the surface and a little below the skin.

A metaphor for their work together, they cultivate the figure of the parasite: a form of life that moves through its hosts, incubating them at their expense. Sometimes harmful, the parasite also opens us up to new potentialities, for change, adaptation or support.
[I mean that from the beginning, the mourning of the potentials is impossible and that I no longer really know if the dead things reside in me or if I am the parasite of them.]
(Imagine. It's a Goa'uld symbiote bringing Marie Antoinette back to life. What would they be doing here?)
I hope for this collaboration that the work of Camille and Jimmy will be contaminated. I want the limits of their practices to leak and become porous, for forms and desires to migrate between them, to dislodge, to welcome each other, to disturb the image and the sculpture.

What happens when two artists lose their bearings in the work of the other? What can they find there?

Founded in October 2010 by Rosario Caltabiano, the 22,48 m2 gallery aims to be a singular exhibition space and a place for the dissemination of contemporary works from the international scene, with a particular focus on emerging French artists.
Since its creation, the gallery has organized and produced over 60 exhibitions. With an eye open to new technologies, they all have in common a questioning of the evolution of contemporary art.
Through its innovative research work, it strives to reflect on a new vision of the art gallery, and in this sense, is an integral part of the latest generation of art market players.
