Landscape, Elizabeth Leriche

Elsewhere in Nature – The soothing contemplation of landscapes feeds our gaze and our mind. A quest for getaways, for higher ground is opening the doors of creativity. We are transcribing the reverie of a poetic, sensitive nature. Between the force of material things and evanescent lightness, between immenseness and microcosms, a physical and spiritual escape is teleporting our imaginations toward new horizons. Travel logs in lands of feeling.

Heliotropic, François Bernard

Elsewhere under the Sun – A solar art of living is wandering through enclaves that are festive or quiet, transgressive or meditative, in an often somber time. Hotly blazing suns are like the metal of a blade taken from the embers. Midnight suns, white nights, cold suns gleaming like mercury. The heavenly body that is the sun is irradiating creation. It is divine, artsy, sexy, sometimes kitschy and eccentric, luxurious and joyful. Irresistibly hot.


Beyond, Vincent Grégoire pour Nelly rodi

Elsewhere in abysses and space – Immediate boarding for the most final distant lands. At the edges of space or in oceanic depths, we are diving into the unknown. A contemporary cabinet of curiosities is bringing together sea-punks and mermaids in mid- water, robots and astronauts searching for new frontiers. The infinitely far is opening up new vistas for creation. A bizarre beauty, strange and mysterious, stellar and astonishing.
