This year sees a ppr oc he reach the important milestone of its fifth year in existence, demonstrating that its unique format, unlike existing models, has won over collectors, art lovers, participating artists and galleries, as well as professionals in the contemporary art world. A milestone marked by a return to normality at the Molière, the private mansion that has hosted the salon since its inception, and now emblematic of its more intimate format. To mark this event, I invited 5 curators to present one or two artists each, with the same ambition: to expand horizons, initiate encounters, and forge new ties.

The artists selected this year reflect the major concerns of many of their contemporaries. Exploring new territories, whether geographical, scientific or imaginary, is central to works by Caroline Corbasson, Grégoire Eloy, Sylvie Bonnot and Ilanit Illouz. While Kim Boske and Bertrand Hugues lend a new form to reality through precise and calculated gestures. The experts of traditional techniques, Antony Cairns, John Chiara and Yasmina Benabderrahmane, experiment from the shooting and chemical bath processes, to the media used for printing. Mouna Saboni and Vasantha Yogananthan document and revisit their personal memories, somewhere between fact and fiction. While Camille Bénarab-Lopez and Alix Marie waver between photography, sculpture and installation, Marleen Sleeuwits and Laurent Millet go so far as to become set designers of the photographed in situ installation. Finally, David Weber-Krebs proposes a new form of experimentation, through an online performance which takes the form of a late-night Zoom call in which an over-stimulation of images leads to a shared sleep experience between the performer and the viewer.

The content is rich and diverse, with a series of discoveries that will encourage collectors and visitors to reflect on the current state of experimentation in the medium.
