Sabine Timm is an artist, illustrator and photographer. She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Düsseldorf, Germany and works in a charming backyard studio in the heart of the city. Her studio, which can be found on a rooftop full of greenery and scattered boxes stuffed with little treasures Sabine finds here and there, is an island of creativity.
She turns these happy finds into little characters and invents situations for them with a sense of humor brimming with irony and mischief. If she sells pictures of her productions, her characters always stay in the studio because they are part of an endless process of construction and deconstruction.
On the 'Committed Family' theme, Sabine presents the portrait of a singular, handyman-like, inspired and joyful family drawn from her inexhaustible repertoire of images.

Marie-Johanna Cornut's practice likes to pay special attention to the participation of her audiences, whether it is the symbolism of the images, the narrative or the relationship to the performativity. Her sculptural objects, which are interplays between shapes, contrasting materials, and colors, convey a sense of perpetual motion. Her installations respond to a given place, its history, and to the encounters from which the artist likes to draw to elaborate the fabric of what she likes to call "environment-driven constellations". This vocabulary of geometric forms inspired by the history of art or pop culture constitutes an elastic grid of interpretation: the circulation, the breathing between each sculpture allows it to create fictional frames, scenic spaces. / Sandra Doublet, critic.
Straight out of the atmosphere of the 'Creative Gang' theme, the decor proposed by Marie-Johanne Cornut is a photo of her installation 'La lune des lapins', presented in Lyon at the Ateliers Vortex in 2016.
