Cyril Debon (born in 1987 in Bordeaux, lives and works in Paris)

Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel (respectively born in1976 in Forrest of Dean, GB and in 1975 in St Brieux, FR, live and work between Brussels and Paris)
From tapestry to granite carving, from wooden sculpture to ceramic works, Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel vocabulary combines genres in a playful – but yet erudite – immoderation. They multiply references to popular culture in an assertive manner, putting at risk aesthetic canons and the surrounding high taste while creating a dialogue with a more traditional history of sculpture, from its ancestral origins to the post-industrial era. The patterns they decline borrow as much to the medieval recumbent statue as to forms of abstraction developed by artists during the second half of the twentieth century. Their work has been shown worldwide in numerous museums and artfairs, including Santa Barbara Museum of Art, California, USA, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, Yokohama Museum of Art, Japon... In 2012 they received the Marcel Duchamp Price. They are represented by Loevenbruck in Paris, Micheline Szwajcer in Brussels and Truth and Consequences in Geneva.

Horrible Bise is a rock band that does not play music but rather plays materials, that does not play gigs but instead plays compositions. Between performance and sculpture, Horrible Bise operates as a meeting point for the cult of attitude and imagery specific to rock culture and the world of contemporary art. For the majority of their installations, the band produces sculptures in order to ‘pose’ on them, which, as accessories, act as pedestals for the three artists. They are forms of glory, shapes or situations understood as supports that allow the band to assert their attitude and celebrity. Thus, the compositions that the trio produces rarely function in isolation, but rather are activated through the specific context of each project. At Deborah Bowmann gallery, however, for the first time, the band has decided to withdraw from the stage.
