A culinary experience imagined by Johann Le Guillerm & Alexandre Gauthier
One “writes” his dishes, the other wants to “feed” people his ideas. Alexandre Gauthier is a world-renowned chef whose creativity established him as a singular identity that earned him a second Michelin star in 2017. He talks about the rhythm of the flavours, of power that builds to a crescendo, ruptures in tastes and palettes of emotions. He likes art and the encounters they allow him to engage in, and especially trailblazers like Johann Le Guillerm.
The conductor and the artist are united by the same way of acting: laboratory research and artistic exploration tinged with a strong taste for transgressing the established codes.
They were made to meet one another. Johann Le Guillerm has a longstanding desire to open what he calls “new spaces of play” removed from conventions by pursuing his infinite quest for the minimal, that “not much” that can be found in the Whole. Food was already part of his projects, but it was the meeting with Alexandre Gauthier that allowed him to make the project a reality with a crazy dream, to unite the head and stomach by giving food for thought during an “enchanted” meal.
It is an invitation to a strange rite that will offer an existential experience of tasting concepts with the stomach as well as the mind. These two extremities of Man are linked by a column that allow him to keep standing.
The cuisine is concocted by the chef, while the objects, forms and scenography are from Attraction and the approaches to this culinary performance are the result of the meeting. The nourishing experience is unique, totally unusual and magical. It brings the whole body into play, imagined as a place of total experience.

To act on the world disorders to detect other layouts and create a new poetic order. An original cartography of a planet without places, Attraction is a project-manifesto to take ownership of our environment, to think by ourselves.
A position. To disrupt our convictions, resist ready-to-think and open up new alternatives.
A protocol of the sight. The world is what we see of it and what is invisible to us. In order to fully comprehend it, it is needed to take into account the multiplicity of points of views that we have.
Principles. Repartir de zéro, observer, expérimenter, tenter, créer.
A rhizome artwork made of accumulations, hybridizations, and mutations that constantly slip between various artistic fields.
A work in progress in constant evolution that shapes a landscape with infinite borders.

Artist coming from the circus world, Johann Le Guillerm studied at the Centre National des Arts du Cirque, he toured with Archaos, la volière Dromesko, co-founded the Cirque O. In 1994, he founded his own company and created a first solo show, Où ça ? , which toured five years. Johann Le Guillerm was awarded in 1996 with the Grand Prix National du Cirque, in 2005 with the Grand Prix des Arts du Cirque SACD and in 2017 the Grand Prix SACD. After a round-the-world trip during which he faces the imbalances of handicapped, traumatized and autarkic worlds, in 2001 he embarked on the Attraction project to take a 360° look at the world. The project led him to explore sculpture, installation, performance, conference and show. A multidisciplinary trajectory he calls practice of the range of points of view.
Since 2011, Johann Le Guillerm is supported and hosted by the Mairie de Paris at the Jardin d’Agronomie Tropicale – Paris, for a creative research residency.

The company works on create mediation tools with a direct link to the artistic project. The setting up of workshops, experiences, professional meetings or specific builds itself into a joint project with cultural structures to say, to do, to feel through experimentation, the gaze, the movement. Thus, projects are built that nurture and are nurtured on long term by the mediation project.
