Appearing in French in the 13th century, the expression «entre chien et loup» already existed in antiquity. We can read in a text of the second century: «when man does not can distinguish the dog from the wolf». Inter canem and lupum refers to the evening or morning, the time of day when it is too dark to differentiate a dog from a dog wolf. The dog would symbolize the day since, like him, he can guide us; while the wolf would be the symbol of the night, representing a threat, but also nightmares and fear.
Alain Bernardini questions the distortion of representation stereotypes of the world of work and human activity. Through his achievements, he redefines the identity of the subject and allows him to occupy a place other than that which is imposed on him.
Véronique Boudier maintains the course of an always surprising work in the economy of its means and of a constancy of direct efficiency which is revealed of a unique poetic and existential scope.
Frédéric Héritier is polymorphous. His favourite subject is the human being. Its practices are multiple to strike the most just, the operating mode being defined by the issue.
Véronique Hubert works and stages fictional characters since 1996, like the fairy UTOPIA. The polymorphic of his research is based on the complicity with other artists, his entourage, or even with audiences.
Valérie Jouve likes to see cities that are above all fed by many living elements. Its exhibits are often designed as visual compositions, the time of a place.
Roberto Martinez develops a multi-media artistic practice and questions the production, the circulation of images, the political and their inclusion in the various current flows.
