Welcome to contemporary  artist Jordane Saget!

13422425_1814143038808932_2233058140970349128_o

A 35 ans, Jordane Sajet, fait son entrée sur la scène artistique parisienne. Après une période d’introspection et de recherche, ses lignes sont sorties de ses carnets de dessins. Besoin de liberté et d’expression, il part se confronter à la ville, au béton, aux couloirs du Métro, armé simplement d’une craie blanche. Avec une gestuelle proche d’une danse rituelle, il trace trois lignes blanches qui s’entremêlent librement et envahissent l’espace. En soulignant les lieux par ses interventions éphémères, il offre aux passants une nouvelle vision de leur quotidien.

Une craie en quête de l’inaccessible étoile 

Bonnet de laine et backpack en bandoulière, il arpente infatigablement rues, places et passages, couloirs souterrains, allées branchées et recoins solitaires… Le CV de Jordane Saget pourrait tenir dans les cinq mots de Daniel Buren : «Vit et travaille in situ.» L’improvisation comme seul programme confèrera à tel décrochement, recoin, cassure, colonne, façade ou sol le statut de “spot”.

Dans la lignée des Keith Haring, Philippe Baudelocque ou Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, le bâton de craie «tableau» servira de relais.

Une gestuelle, une chorégraphie, les mains décrivent de lascives arabesques du danseur étoile, valse viennoise de l’odyssée d’un espace méticuleusement choisi, où le motif n’aura pour but que de magnifier le support en remerciement de son accueil et de son abri.

« Et avant que le monde ne se défasse, imaginer le partage de la beauté… Et en superbe, une architecture qui trace les périodes et marque les lieux, joue avec les ombres et les angles, pointe des aspérités sous les courbes, marie le bois et la pierre, lustre la brique, polit le verre, fait étinceler et danser la céramique.»* Musique répétitive, phrasés reproduits à l’envi, toujours semblables mais jamais pareils. Inlassablement les notes se jouent d’une partition non dogmatique, générant des portées qu’une ondée, une semelle ou une paume brouilleront naturellement, par inadvertance ou délibérément.

Poignet souple et attentionné, douce craie inexorablement érodée par la rugosité du support : c’est la langoureuse étreinte d’un ménage à trois.

Car de trinité il s’agit. Compagne depuis la nuit des temps des civilisations chinoises et celtiques, Sainte, p’tits cochons et ours de contes, Grâces, triades et triplets, sœurs des Parques maîtresses de la destinée humaine, périodes du Taï Chi… Toutes correspondances et bien d’autres encore justifiant à l’évidence l’amovible pseudo J3.

Trois lignes parallèles matricielles placentant le fœtus de Sébastien Lecca, trois lignes d’art spatial irriguant les colonnes Buren du Palais-Royal, trois lignes intemporelles, ombre projetée de la pyramide de Yeoh Ming Pei au Louvre.

Trois lignes parallèles virevoltant au gré de l’imaginaire, de l’inattendu, free-hand, s’incurvant d’un parcours toujours renouvelé même si çà et là parvient à s’insinuer, le temps d’un éclair, le doute ou l’incertitude ?

Qu’importe l’origine ou le destin du tracé si entre l’œuvre, l’artiste et les passants il n’est plus question que d’harmonie.

par Jean-Luc Hinsinger

Jordane est un artiste contemporain, la rue est certes un lieu qu’il affectionne toutefois son travail s’exprime aussi sur des toiles, des objets, dans des lieux privés et pour certaines maisons et institutions. A ce jour, Jordane a collaboré avec L’Hotel Drouot, des particuliers,  l’hotel Renaissance République à la demande de Didier Gomez, la Mairie du Premier Arrondissement, l’Opéra Bastille,  l’Orchestre de Paris /  le Festival d’Automne, le Théâtre National de Chaillot,  le Printemps Haussmann Homme, le CNRS et d’autres maisons et institutions qui pour des raisons de confidentialité désirent rester anonymes.

Jordane is a contemporary artist, the city is certainly a place where he loves expressing himself and the chalk his brush however he does express himself in many different ways as well. He customises objects, does murals in private places, draws, paint on paper and on canvas too…. He has few limits, he needs to create.

His most recent commissioned work involved a commissioned piece for the Hotel Drouot, the famous parisian auction house, The City Hall of the First District requested by the Mayor, some art work for the Hotel Renaissance Republique commissioned by Didier Gomez, a performance for the Opéra Bastille with Fubiz, some commissioned art work for l’Orchestre de Paris /  le Festival d’Automne, the National Theatre de Chaillot, le Printemps Haussmann, le CNRS, some murals for some private clients that do wish to remain anonymous.

Akiko Stehrenberger – Los Angeles-based artist who’s represented by artist management agency, H Represents – work spans from advertising, editorial and various creative outlets and is mostly recognized for her illustrated movie posters.

 Welcome to our youngest talent : Miss Helena Hauss.

Helena Hauss is an Illustrator.
She graduated in 2012 form a small graphic arts school in the south of France, and after a few months of free-lancing in different advertising agencies (LEG, BETC, NOUVELOEUVRE), She has  decided to try her luck at being a professional illustrator. Drawing is her passion and she spent most of her days doing it.
She draws very large pieces of art (usually around 100cm x 70cm) that allow her to really go into details of hair, patterns and typography, all in bic pens, with bright and contrasted colors.
Her style of drawing has never been something quite conscious. It just kind of happened, for different reasons that had nothing to do with choice. For example, she has always had a big attraction for the color blue, so much so that all her clothes and accessories were a shade of it, so when she drew she very much liked using blue ink, such as the one found in bic pens.
Besides, she first started drawing abundantly all through high school in her homework books rather than writing down what the teacher was saying, and using bic pens was always a good way not to get caught when being watched from afar ! As she grew up however, she started experimenting with other medium, but never finding herself quite at ease with them as she felt with biro pens, to which  she has grown so accustomed. Indeed, no other medium allows her to put so much emphasis and details into hair, reflects and patterns as she so much loves to do. In the beginning she used to feel a little bit ashamed for using ball-point pens, like she didn’t feel like a real artist, but in more recent years she noticed it became kind of a trend and she got to embrace it, as it felt this was actually exactly the right time and the right place to do just that ! ” but! she  still does digital painting too!

Chiara Clemente directs her first music video “Undone” for Lucille Michelle & The Velvet Lapelles. The video does not go unnoticed ,  MTV comments.
We are very happy to welcome incredibly talented director Chiara Clemente to the agency.

Chiara Clemente is a film director who explores identity, cultural contrast, and the creative process. Her love of art can be traced back to a childhood spent tiptoeing around paintings in her father’s studio. After attending film school at Art Center in Pasadena, she directed her first art documentary in 2000 for RAI in Italy. In the following years, Chiara continued to film and collaborate with artists such as Jim Dine, Brice Marden, and Frank Gehry. In 2005, she began filming her first critically-acclaimed documentary, “Our City Dreams”, which followed the lives and work of five contemporary women artists (Nancy Spero, Marina Abramovic, Kiki Smith, Ghada Amer and Swoon) in New York City. Our City Dreams premiered at the prestigious Film Forum in February 2009, screened in more than 30 cities worldwide, and was broadcast on the Sundance Channel.
Shortly after, Chiara directed several short films: “Curiosity” for Saatchi and Saatchi, “Remembering Sprouse” with Louis Vuitton for The New York Times, “Richard Tuttle and Mario Sorrenti” for W Magazine and a series of short portrait pieces for Anthropology.
In 2010 she directed a film for Levi’s initiative “Shape What’s to Come” that premiered at the TED Conference. That same year she wrote and directed: “Beginnings”, an original short film series for the Sundance Channel, which after the Second Season won a Webby Award for Best Doc Series. She also directed the online series Made Here: Performing Artists on Work and Life in New York City, which is now in production for its fourth season.
This past year she worked with Apple, Wieden + Kennedy Portland, and most recently with Persol for Publicis Paris as well as directed her first music video for Lucy Michelle & The Velvet Lapelles  which was featured on MTV.

Sarah Soquel Morhaim will be showing some work in Los Angeles this fall. The show opening is Thursday September 13th. You will need to rsvp to attend the opening night or go there before October 21st. The exhibition is curated by W magazine.

Sarah Soquel Morhaim shoots Pablo Ferro for the new art & film issue of Paris-LA. Grand innovator in design, typography and editing, he created the title sequences and trailers for Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, The Thomas Crown Affair, Harold and Maude, Midnight Cowboy, The Russians Are Coming, Being There, Stop Making Sense, and a million others. He pioneered quick-cut editing before the masses (see here and here) and split-screens. Before Kubrick brought him into movies he was the freak of Madison avenue (I keep waiting for a character based on him to show up on mad men). He edited the music video for Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’ and did the first color animation of the NBC peacock. He’s worn a black suit and red scarf everyday for decades because ‘it tells me who I am.’
