Je m'appelle Marina NOVIKOVA

Je suis animée à la fois par la passion de l'art, de la création et du monde des affaires. Mon parcours a débuté dans le domaine du théâtre, exploré la linguistique, pour finalement s'ancrer dans l'univers palpitant du management et du développement de projets artistiques. Avec plus de vingt ans d'expérience, j'ai tracé mon chemin à travers des domaines aussi divers que le show-business, le tourisme et l'industrie cinématographique. Ma reussite s'est traduite tant sur le plan humain que financier, elle découle de ma capacité à guider des équipes, à donner vie à des projets ambitieux et à partager mes connaissances avec une passion inébranlable. J'ai eu le privilège de participer à des foires et salons internationaux, d'être aux commandes de projets mémorables lors de lancements de nouveaux produits et services, mariant habilement créativité et stratégie. Aujourd'hui, je me lance dans un projet magnifique, un mariage entre l'art contemporain et le design. Entourée d'une équipe d'explorateurs bénévoles, chacun animé par la passion de l'art et des technologies numériques, nous sommes de véritables experts du marché de l'art, du design, de l'audiovisuel et des finances. Ensemble, nous écrivons de nouvelles pages, questionnant notre relation profonde avec l'art. Notre histoire est une ode à la créativité, à l'innovation et à la redéfinition constante de la beauté.

With a team of volunteer explorers, passionate about art and digital technologies, we have decided to write new pages with you that will question us about our relationship to art. We thus project within ourselves and help us build new relationships with ourselves and others.


We have been passionate art collectors for over 35 years. Art in the current sense, fine art, has always fascinated us by its capacity to express the deepest emotions of the human soul, while reflecting the social and cultural concerns of an era or to imagine a perception.


In 2023, we have decided to share our passion with you, on the contemporary period of our history, where our minds are still in touch with our environment, where time has not yet erased our distant memories. 


We plan to embark on a new adventure by organizing exhibitions, conferences, private visits, exchanges or sales of our contemporary works. 


We also wish to revisit another relationship with art with which you will be an actor or co-producer of works, with some of the most promising artists, to help you build new keys to understanding our relationship to life.


Everything has to be built, we look forward to seeing you explore and build together a future that carries meaning and values.
