The intermittences of the heart
Laroche and Rabichon's project is not only a challenge; it proceeds from a real detour of the canonical nature of photography, so much the fact of creating a negative from autochromes is properly unnatural.
It is to generate a stasis, to add a stage to the history of a mode which is suddenly increased, in an almost iconoclastic way, by the manufacture of an artifact. A potentially reusable negative - a "multiple", as it were. If something subversive is at work in the way the two photographers have approached the realization of this series, their posture is fully in line with the tradition of a Man Ray when he invented rayograms or of a Paolo Gioli, combining Polaroid film, pinhole camera and transfer to paper. "Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed", Lavoisier proclaimed in his time. The very principle of creation finds its justification in this formula and Les Intermittences du cœur is a new illustration.

Mustapha Azeroual x Salvatore Ferragamo
Salvatore Ferragamo invites Mustapha Azeroual to an exhibition that seals the encounter between two worlds inspired by the power of color. As a common thread, the Monade series is placed on the mantels of the fireplaces like dazzling terminals. Sort of light traps, they restore the invisible to the eye, flash impacts captured in a mixture of pigments and gum arabic. A resounding echo found in the eponymous series of contemporary daguerreotypes, delicate and precious images with gold and silver reflections. Two bronzes in the shape of reflecting bowls question further with their paradoxical title of Black Bodies. Other mysterious punctuations, the photograms of ACTIN partly composed of fluorescent pigments, that a black light could still reveal quite differently. As a climax, the work Radiance describes the circadian cycle of light in an inventory of colors captured at sunset. A leitmotif of the artist's work, the experience of light as a sensitive material is reminiscent of color as a motif constantly reinvented by Ferragamo in each season.
