Vichy becomes, for one season, an outpost of today's photography
and presents to the public exhibitions both prominent and accessible, exclusively focused on portraiture. Either that is derived from the documentary tradition or that it is fiction, intimate or made from more conceptual devices. It brings together portraits of celebrities such as anonymous artists and draws on the works of well-known photographers as well was younger artists. For three years, the city of Vichy has been confirming its commitment to contemporary photography by offering a home to a photographer. This year, the Swedish Anton Renborg has discovered, day and night, the streets of Vichy and has been fascinated by the unique atmosphere of the place.

His “small theater of excess” invites each of us to the indescribable pleasure of contemplation.

The Belgian artist presents for her second exhibition
a series of paintings that delivers the essence of Being from which she declines passions, doubts, personal questions, dreams and dramas. She transposes her paintings in his vision of the human condition, always shrouded in mystery. Witness this anonymous gallery of characters which we know the age only approximately and whose gender is sometimes open to question. The strangeness that emerges from portraits of Sophie Kuijken has the same method of the artist who creates her models from images collected on the Internet, after a keyword search. The result is a gallery of individuals which she anonymity cultivates by compiling them.

Model size reproductions of architectural spaces, external or natural environments devoided of any human presence, these scale models 1: 1 are made of paper and cardboard. The scenes are inspired by real locations, memories of places or events that, despite the generic titles of the works often refer to very important historical and media contexts.
