Hugo Brégeau
Born in 1987 in Nantes, Hugo Brégeau lives and works in Paris. Graduated with honors in 2011 at l’écoles des Beaux-Arts d’Angers. He had the great opportunity of working for the american artist Ben Kinmont. During this period, his mains area of interest were touching interrogations concerning the Art status and questioning the different levels of the creative gesture.
The work of Hugo Brégeau mainly explores problematics around translation. One of the main concern of his work is our relationship to the dematerialized economy. Through graphs, installations, maps, etc... his proposals act as a bait to our perceptions of things, giving us new fields of readings and experiences.

Zone Blanche, film super 16, Gaëlle Cintré, 2013

Gaëlle Cintré’s video projects are caught between documentary and fiction. They often originate in everyday life anecdotes as well as science-fiction stories. She is currently finishing a documentary film on electro-hypersensitive persons. These persons are allergic to the artificial electromagnetic fields given off by our electronic devices and have to flee cities in serach of "white zones" in order to survive. She has obtained a DNSEP (École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Lyon)

Born in Norwich, 1983 and currently living in Paris. In 2007 Henderson received a First Class BA Honours in Film and Video from London College of Communication, and in 2013 graduated with ‘felicitations du jury’ from Le Fresnoy, Studio national des arts contemporains. He has shown his work nationally and internationally at festivals and art institutions including, Rotterdam International Film Festival, CPH:DOX, Kassel Dokfest, Transmediale, Le Printemps de Septembre, Belo Horizonte Film Festival, Jihlava Documentary Festival, EMAF Osnabrueck, British Film Institute, Centre Pompidou, Museo Reina Sofia, Tate Modern and Whitechapel Gallery.
Henderson’s films can be categorised as documentary-fictions that engage with subjects such as post-colonialism, history, politics and anthropology. His cinema reflects on society’s cultural and material remains and as such his films are essentially archaeological ; focusing on the signatures of the archaic in the contemporary.

Mónica Restrepo
Mónica Restrepo, Born in Bogotá – Colombia, 1982. Has lived in Colombia, France and Lebanon. Through out research, performance and a documental approach she makes work based on seemingly banal and small stories, she uses as arguments to fabricate absent images, installations and missing narrations. From a performative point of view, these stories are always related to memory and documents -some of them visible some others, not- she re-stages, re-interpret or re-enact to make them talk through their impotence and failure.

João Vieira Torres born in Recife, Brazil, in 1981, lives in north of the Amazon until the age of 17 years old. Migrates to the United States thant to France, where he lives since 2002. He undertake his theoretical and practical studies in visual arts and drama. Achieves a Masters degree in photography and video art in the Ecole nationale superieure des arts décoratifs of Paris. Integrates Le Fresnoy Studio national des arts contemporains from where he graduates in 2012.
His practice takes many forms (photographic series, performances, installations…) and it currently focus on the relationship between cinema and contemporary art. One of the main axes of his work is the question of "foreignness" and the forms of instability and tipping points of perspective caused by it. The foreigner, the displaced, the intruder as positive elements making more complex paradigms such as : objectivity vs. subjectivity, I vs. Them, belonging vs. rejection, proximity vs. distance…
