SPACE Collection gives carte blanche to the artist Michael Dans and the young curator Pauline Salinas. The two curators literally take over the space and offer an exhibition with a punk vibe, rich in names and in pussies.

« With its haughty eye and bushy tail, these days it is impossible to escape it. It owns bars, advertising contracts and has more followers than you and I put together. The cat is everywhere and reigns peerlessly over the world of the media. Its independent spirit, its individualism and its photogenic looks which are placing every strata of society under its charm. 

It is one of the last links with an untamed, wild world inaccessible to our urbanised worlds. But its sixteen hours of daily sleep, its appearance of a living soft toy also make it a symbol of a turning in on oneself, embodied in the extreme by the persistent cliché of "the old woman with the cats". But when everything is collapsing around you, who doesn't dream of a refuge in the form of balls of hair?  

To interrogate the omnipresence of this totemic animal, and through it to figure out our own obsessions, we have convened the eyes of different contemporary photographers.
