Collector of stones and stories
Nelle gleans and tells stories invoking collections of venom stones, stone butches that transmit their rocky languages, fossilized will-o’-the-wisps at bends in the paths, singing floods and muddy gestures. He likes to create semi-fictitious spaces, as if to invite himself into our dreams and hallucinations and invite himself to embody imaginary and desiring roles. His work takes the form of installations, costumes, altars, collections, drawings and invitations to tell stories.
Imaginary investigator photographer
Camille Fallet began by documenting the landscapes of Aveyron, where he grew up, and continues a series on Molènes, tall plants found almost everywhere in the world, dispersed by wind and cars. Like an investigator, Camille Fallet identifies potentially significant elements each time in a given environment. His research is also that of previous images, linked to a personal imagination. In this associative visual memory, the notion of cutting, in the double sense of extraction and sequence, holds an essential place. She is the link between comics, fantasy films and artist books using photography through which her gaze has been formed. He is part of the initiating team of the INVENTARY project which brings together a wide selection of photographic works carried out in the Bouches-du-Rhône metropolitan area since the 1980s. Today, it brings together nearly 60 photographers and more than 5,000 images. . This unprecedented gathering of photographic works aims to be exhibited online to present side by side series of images that reveal, as they travel through them, these territories swept by the same wind.

Documentary filmmaker of living together
Assuming a photographic practice with an evolving grammar, Benjamin Béchet is as interested in the documentary approach as in the staging.
He has co-founded collectives and participated in collective adventures: Dolce-Vita, Odessa Photograpie (s) or the cooperative agency Picturetank.
His desire for multidisciplinary work has led him to direct multimedia films for Médecins Sans Frontières as well as to stage self-portraits and exquisite corpses.
He works with the French (Geo, Elle, Society, Obs …), foreign (New York Times, Vanity Fair, Spiegel, Stern …) and NGOs (MSF …) press.
Since 2020, he has devoted himself to the new sensitivity accorded to living things and to “human-non-human” relationships.
“I was born in 1976. I worked as a graphic designer, but now it’s mostly drawing. Outdoor drawing and comics, that’s my hygiene. When I’m a little too choking at home, I go out and, if I’m lucky enough to be in a big city, I fight against the crowds. The rest of the time, if I’m in the south, I do the same with the creeks. “
After graduating from the Haute École des arts du Rhin (HEAR Strasbourg), Pierre Tandille began working with various cultural structures, associations and artists. He collaborates with other designers as well as with architect-builders for projects on paper and on screen as much as in the city, on various materials. Considering his work as a documentary form, he attaches a lot of importance to the preliminary investigation work during which he observes and questions the intervention context, the production of content, the printing and manufacturing processes, as well as the tools. broadcast. This taste for investigation leads him to collaborate regularly with artists, designers as well as with children or passers-by to research together, during work sessions or public workshops. In his relationship with the reader, he likes to open up spaces for play and creative ambiguity thanks to a vocabulary of free forms and pure colors. Pierre et Aéro Club Studio regularly collaborates with the Bureau des guides through the DEHORS editions as well as with the Gammares collective.

Côme di Meglio is a visual artist, born in 1988 in Paris. He lives and works in Marseille.
“My creative process begins with an attention to the environment. A recognition of the terrain gives rise to an exploration of the available material, its often unrecognized and unsuspected properties and qualities. These are as well sensory, organic, and symbolic, and capable of making our physical dimension resonate. I summon the essential elements to all forms of life, earth, fire, water and clouds, the breath of orality. I harvest and I weave plants. I grow mushrooms to create building materials. Food also has a central place in my practice, symbolizing the transformations of matter that operate around us, and from which we derive our energy. “

Bio-artist specializing in hybrid and antagonistic landscapes
If the starting point of Camille Goujon’s work is anchored in reality, her plastic creations give shape to the imagination, a pretext for telling stories where the articulation between reality and fiction is so tenuous that it allows her to deal with serious subjects with humor.
It was during a school exchange between the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris and the Art Center college in Los Angeles in 2004 that Camille Goujon began an investigation into the history of water in Los Angeles. .
Her work on the disappearance of water, geological collapses, networks, environmental disasters linked to human activity is gaining momentum.
In 2018, Camille Goujon decided to move to Marseille, a city where she found many similarities with Los Angeles. Due to its light, its Mediterranean climate, its vegetation, the aridity of its landscapes, the confrontation between mineral and architecture, the very extent of this city spread out between sea and mountains, the diversity of its population …
The research that she is currently developing in Marseille is part of the continuity of her investigation into collapses, disappearance, underground networks, the highlighting in the minuscule of serious issues that reveal the political, economic and ecological history of ‘a territory’.
Photographer of being, of things and of places
In his photographic practice, Grégoire Édouard’s main concern is questions relating to the place of man within the biosphere. His photographic practice is guided by numerous steps, and tries to restore the links that bind us to beings, things and places. It is born in the meeting of the ordinary and tries to celebrate its presence. Fragmented, without artifice, the writing draws its strength from the sensoriality combined with the experience of the outside as a movement from the inside to the outside (and vice versa). His approach requires time, a time to fully live the artistic experience and free from everything superfluous, it lies in the accomplishment of a practice: immersive stays, daily walks, the simplification of his work tools and the quest for greater freedom to act. In his latest work Bruissement, he attempts to deconstruct the dichotomy between nature and culture, by offering a multiple, sensory and living approach, which reweaves relationships between humans and the rest of life.
