The salon H was created with the need to share our favourites, our stances, the ideas and reflections that interested us, sometimes shaking us up, and discovering new talents that touched us in innovative areas such as plastic arts, contemporary creation and thought.
The salon H is an exhibition centre and as much as a place for one of a kind exchanges, it is thought like a 21st century salon and can be discovered like a stimulating space, a link between experiences and new paths.
The salon H was created by Yaël Halberthal and Philippe Zagouri in February 2013.

Born in 1968, Julien Chatelin graduates from New York University and becomes a photographer in 1992. He first chooses photo reportage and works in ex-Soviet Union on new Caucasus republics. He then focuses on conflicts in the Balkan, Central Asia and Middle East, more specifically on nations without a state, and carries out a remarked work in Tibet, which has been on display at the Soros foundation’s Open Society Institute in New York in 2005.His arrival in Israel, a land full of images, gives a concrete turn to his involvement in a new artistic path in which he explores the richness and complexity of an Israeli society ready to implode.Through his work, Julien Chatelin explores the different faces of a plural and paradoxical world, making no concession and always keeping a distance, as well as a certain affection and precision, almost in a classical painting kind of grace.A book prefaced by Valérie Zenatti, “Israeli Borderline”, was published from this work. Julien Chatelin is also co-fonder of “de l’air”, a magazine devoted to all photographical scripts.
Milo is a young artist who comes from street art and created a 3D work specifically for Salon H. The art installation is completed with photographs from recent interventions by the artist (invisible Minority Rome Barcelone, Paris 2012, UFP Paris, Berlin Bruxelles 2010-2012)
“Coming from the young French street art generation, Milo is gradually establishing himself with force and poetry in his work.”
“Milo’s characters seem to be defying the gravitation laws by inviting themselves in our urban scenery. For the first time they will invest a closed place for a special event”
Christian Courrèges lives and works in Paris. He teaches at Ensad.
He creates portraits with subjects who belong to groups more or less formal, sometimes wearing signs and attributes of their function or condition.
"They are couples. Couples in theory. Or families, small tribes. (…)
Like if all these characters were appearing one by one or together in front of us with the insane hope that we will not see that it is not true, that they are not couples, that they just met and that if they are posing, it is to please the photographer, to play pretend.”
Some like to brandish (as proof) children that might be theirs, others come terribly close to one another like if extreme proximity created a feeling of belonging, but it is never compelling: there is a wild and studious will, a bit exaggerated to “be a couple” or to “be a group”, but it is this will that we see, like a desperate joke. We will say that they might be real parents, real children. It does not matter.
What is beautiful in these pictures is first of all the ink black doubt.
These photos are really from today. They allow you to see to which extent we lost the resemblance (…) it is in our way of not wanting to look like each other that we now look like each other.”
Serge Daney, 1992
Every other month, Wendy Delorme and Isabelle Sorente and their guests meet on stage to read, tell, perform or chant unpublished texts.
Guest novelists, essayists, slam poets, bloggers, performers and poets go first. For an hour and a half, eight guests share their work with the audience, alternating with new talents selected for their bold, rhythmic texts and what they have to say…
Only one rule, for all: five minutes to read what is on your mind on a theme favourable to crossing perspectives and sent out by Wendy and Isabelle.

This young artist, passionate with the magic of light, multiplies varied projects, exploring all the possibilities offered by this medium technologically mutating.
Since the beginning of the 2000s Johan SUSTRAC is developing his light designer activity.
He collaborated to the creation of the lights for the MAMO, an art centre inaugurated in Marseille in June 2013 for the Canal Nord Scène Europe project, for the Marseille Dance Festival, for the Marseille light festival, and for the scenography of exhibitions and events like the International haute watch making fair, SIHH, in Geneva, for the René Lacoste exhibition at Roland Garos, at the Fontevraud Abbey for the light trophy at the Noailles train station, and finally as light advice for spaces like Cartier, Repetto, Mont Blanc, Pathé Gaumont.
In parallel he conducts an activity of personal research as a light plastic artist, for example for the partnership between the Beaux-Arts and the ENSAT in Lyon. He takes part in 2010 in the Vestiges “jeux d’ombres et de lumières” exhibition in Paris.
Imagined by the salon H, the BEGINNING exhibition marks an important step in his work, the constraints inherent to the place brought him to push his limits and go even further in mastering the game of light and shadows to question its meaning.
