Annabelle Mauger discovered Cathédrale d’Images in Baux-de-Provence in 2000. In 2008, she became the first female director of an immersive digital exhibition there, the first in the world dedicated to Van Gogh. In 2017, together with Julien Baron, her co-director, the pair created lililillilil. As an artistic director, Annabelle is guided by a conviction: Imagine exhibitions must establish a direct, raw relationship between the work of art and the viewer. This approach is based on a radical decision: to unleash the image and the emotion it is imbued with by the artist.
After exploring the world of cinema and training in the technical aspects of audio -visual production, Julien Baron joined the Cathédrale d’Images in Les Baux-de-Provence in 2006. In 2008, together with Annabelle Mauger, he co-directed the world’s first immersive exhibition dedicated to Van Gogh. Together they created lililillilil in 2017. Julien, who is in charge of the design and technical production of Imagine exhibitions, ensures the work is projected authentically and the technology remains hidden behind the work. The aim is twofold: to plunge the spectators into a waking dream, then to keep them immersed in it.
