En septembre 2011, Laetitia Laguzet investit l'atelier du sculpteur Claris Garnier, pour y projeter ses films sur le thème de la Synesthésie.
Cette première exposition aborde la question de l'analogie entre les médiums artistiques. Partant de compositions musicales, elle puise dans son registre personnel pour établir des analogies formelles entre la musique, la photographie et la vidéo. Les musiciens avec lesquels elle a collaboré, jouent en live sur les vidéos. 
En outre, elle projette ses films d'artistes, les peintres Vincent Corpet et Claude Como dont elle expose plusieurs tableaux.

Elle s'inspire du théâtre, du cinéma muet, du Surréalisme, de la mythologie et de la littérature.
