Du 8 juin au 30 septembre 2024, du jeudi au samedi de 14h à 18h ou sur RDV, Collect|MC
L’exposition de groupe CONCRETE BEACHES, ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPES se construit autour d’un hypothétique scénario - abstrait, métaphysique, incertain. Le visiteur doit l’envisager comme un récit fictionnel où chacun peut venir placer son allégorie d’un avenir partagé. Chaque pièce et objet animent ces futurs fantasmés, parfois déjà réalisés. Prenant pour inspiration les rêveries flamboyantes du premier recueil de nouvelles de J.G. Ballard, Vermillon Sands (1973), l’exposition souhaite provoquer l’imagination autour de narrations hybrides.
