Guests artists :

✅ Gerald INCANDELA, Photograph & Painter

Born in Tunisia, Mr. Incandela immigrated to the U.S. after first traveling extensively throughout Europe making Super-8 movies in Berlin, studying photography and learning the art of printing. Today he is renowned for his unique photographic process of merging drawing with photography. His process includes altering his images in the darkroom as he applies the developer with a paint brush revealing only certain elements of each print. As a result, Mr. Incandela's breathtaking photographs blur reality with abstraction.


Mr. Incadela's work is featured in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Seattle Art Museum and the Albright-Knox Museum in Buffalo.

✅ Bernard SACHSÉ, Equestrian and artistic advisor & Pianist

He first turned towards entertainment and cinema and took part in around thirty films (The Daughter of D'Artagnan, Germinal, The Black Stallion, La Reine Margot, Le Hussard sur le Toit ...) as an adjuster or stuntman, notably in Mario Luraschi's team. In 1994, an accident left him paraplegic.

In 2006 he was technical advisor and horse trainer for the film "Danse avec lui" directed by Valérie Guignabodet with Mathilde Seigner, Sami Frey and Jean-François Pignon. The film takes place in part in his stable in Tourly.


His passion for horses, his courage, his tenacity and his perfect knowledge of equestrian techniques allow him to go back on horseback. He participates in and wins many handisport competitions up to the international level. Denis Dercourt's film "En Équilibre" with Albert Dupontel and Cécile de France was loosely based on Bernard Sachsé's autobiography "Sur mes quatre pieds".
