Stephanie Langard . France

Meeting her is like embarking on a quest for truth. A journey, during which you will have to learn how to navigate your way around labyrinthine grounds. The workshop you’ll discover is a secret haven of peace, as if secluded from the world, in the quiet backstreets of Pantin. There, you will find pretty much everything. At first, a lot of light. Light, that pours in and softly touches oak pieces, powdered clay, sculptures and works of art in the making. It is the same light that emanates from Stéphanie Langard’s beaming face.

Vera Nowottny . Germany

Vera Nowottny, born in Bad Neustadt Saale in 1970, is a German visual artist and photographer based in Munich. In her artistic work she pursues two photographic perspectives. One concerns seeing and the situational reaction to external processes, for which digital photography is used. On the other hand, she works in an analogue manner, with the camera obscura and sheet films as recording media. This allows her technical flexibility in generating images that cannot be implemented using digital photography. In contrast to the former, these images are created in the head and are not based on sight.
