This is the first exhibition bringing together eight artists whose respective works lead to a common theme: Nature. In different forms, the works suggest that nature is reclaiming its rights and where the intertwining of the links between Man and Nature is dislocated by the magnification of the latter, paying homage to the matter and what constitutes the substance of the elements that surround us. Sculptures, paintings and photographs dialogue around current issues such as ecology, animal abuse and consideration, or to demonstrate the importance of communing with nature, in a contemplative journey, sometimes esoteric, which questions those who look at them, to better understand our vital environments.

In October 2016, the project of relocating in the Marais, a district greatly dedicated to contemporary art, was realized with the opening of a 640m2 new space. This mansion, formerly Hotel Gegault de Crisenoy, is located between the Musée Picasso and the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature.
The strategic location in the heart of the Marais, the 6 public and private exhibition rooms and the layout of the space all provide the artists of the gallery new perspectives and promote collaborations with curators and international artists. Each exhibition allows hanging artworks simultaneously, establishing a dialogue around works of different artists either represented or invited by the gallery and exhibiting several solo shows at the same time. A large storeroom of works with storage racks, drawing tables and hanging walls is also able to enrich exhibitions and to hang artworks according to various requests and projects.
Besides, the gallery proposes and develops outdoor projects with public and private institutions as well as partnerships with international galleries. The France-Korea Year was a good example, involved in a large number of institutional collaborations, such as the Musée Guimet, the Musée d'Art Moderne in Saint-Etienne, the Musée Cernuschi, the Château de Chambord, the Domaine de Chaumont, the Jardins du Palais-Royal and also the Domaine de Kerguehennec.
Finally, the gallery participates in international art fairs such as Paris Photo since 2009, Artissima, Turin - Art Brussels - KIAF, South Korea - Art Cologne - Drawing Now, Paris - Photo London - Art MIAMI.
