Lashing Skies investigates the tension between individual and collective memory, through five (5) individual’s stories during the events of September 11, 2001. Although these attacks are still deeply rooted in our collective memory, it is not the only tragic common experience in our recent human history. The Paris attacks at the Bataclan, the explosions at the port of Beirut, and of course the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic, are still felt to this day.
We all have particular moments in time throughout our lives when tragedy hits, and marks us for time eternal. We pose the same questions: Where were you that day, that morning? These stories, anchored in time, space, and bodies, affect us all in different ways. Our collective conscience cannot be denied. Rather than avoiding it, we say explore it.
Your journey will take you through a large, dark room filled with ashes and paper scattered throughout the space. As you wander, so to does your mind. What happened here? Where do I begin?
Each poem investigates a human story on the fringe of disaster and the collective narrative that ties them together. You will confront each, without ever meeting their physical or psychological portraits. The soundscapes will envelope you, allowing you to recreate each character and their environment from your own imagination.
Based on the poem series, Ciel à outrances, written by Madeleine Monette and published by Hexagone Editions.
Poems translated by Phyllis Aronoff and Howard Scott and published under the title Lashing Skies by Ekstasis Editions.

The streets of London – dark, shadowy, mysterious – set the stage for Sherlock Holmes: The Exhibition.
With original artifacts and expert commentary, the experience presents an in-depth look at the literary character through the eyes of pop culture and at its creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A physician by trade and a curious investigator himself, Doyle championed a scientific approach to criminal investigation at a time when such forensic techniques were only slowly being incorporated into everyday police work. With astute observation, careful analysis and wit, he fashioned the sinister crimes that gripped Victorian London into riveting tales of mystery, their complexity only surmounted by the masterful solutions developed by Sherlock Holmes and his friend Dr. John H. Watson.
Just as Doyle, the unconventional, forward-looking Holmes championed what was a nascent science at his time. As is the case with modern forensics, Holmes’ investigative approach was highly interdisciplinary, and so is the science represented in this exhibition. Real scientists and specialists introduce a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines engaging us as we train to become a master sleuth.

Join the Little Prince in Brussels and discover the exciting life of his creator
Visitors of all ages are guided in a wonderful and immersive journey by the voice of Antoine’s mother, Marie de Saint Exupéry.
The wonderful world of the Little Prince
In the first part, the artist Arnaud Nazare-Aga has succeeded in bringing the wonderful world of The Little Prince to life.
Thanks to his sculptures, which float in the night of space, visitors can revisit the story of this little man who came from a distant planet to tell us about ourselves. His love of sunsets, the baobabs that threaten his planet, the fox he has to tame, the sheep he has to draw and, above all, his rose: so many images that enchant all the children around the world, past and present.
These are images that Arnaud Nazare-Aga’s talent and spectacular staging revive for the pleasure of all, young and old.
The fascinating life of Saint Exupéry
If The Little Prince is known throughout the world, the life of its author is probably less so.
However, he has always nourished his work with his own life. And what a life!
A passionate aviator, aviation pioneer, writer and combatant during the Second World War, Antoine de Saint Exupéry is a multi-faceted novel character.
Through his life and his works, he transmitted universal values which today find a very special resonance in a world context subject to crises and tensions.
This is the first time that so many personal objects, photos, manuscripts and drawings have been brought together to tell the story of his life.
The fusion of two worlds
The world of The Little Prince and that of his creator will come together in a grandiose immersive space where visitors will witness a game of hide-and-seek between the author and his famous character.
In the midst of a fabulous setting, they find each other, get lost and chase each other in a show that makes use of all the current audiovisual resources.
To the extent that the real life of one ends up merging with the dream life of the other. A breathless cross-over that ends in a happy ending.
This immersive experience was conceived in collaboration with Luc Petit (staging), Christophe Gaeta (scenography and coordination), Vianny Fontaine (writing and sound design) and Penseur de Prod (visuals and video mapping).
The Little Prince’s workshop
Finally, visitors are invited to express themselves, react and make choices in an interactive workshop.
Faced with situations from the life and work of the writer, they will have to choose the one they feel closest to from among the thoughts, attitudes and reactions. They will also be able to leave messages for other visitors and for all those who support the Saint Exupéry Foundation throughout the world.
An official touring exhibition
This exhibit has been built in complete partnership with the Saint Exupéry Foundation.
Scenography and content can be adapted by Tempora to fit into smaller venues or foreign markets.
2023 – A special year
In 2023, we will celebrate the 80th birthday of the publication of The Little Prince in France. Since then, the book was sold over 200M times and translated in more than 400 languages.
The exhibition ‘Islam, it’s also our history!’ is a civilization exhibition which gives an insight into the legacy left by the Muslim civilization on European soil after 13 centuries of presence. It is therefore not an exhibition about the Islamic religion. Nor is it limited only to the presence of Islam in Europe today, even if, of course, this is included.
To help understand this Muslim presence on the European continent, we have grouped evidence of its impact into three legacies which cover very different historical periods and geographical zones even if, of course, overlaps and intersections sometimes occur.
The Arab legacy
The Muslim conquest of Spain which began in 711 led to eight centuries of Islamic presence in Western Europe. Its imprint in every sector of learning was to be deep and long-lasting.
The Ottoman legacy
From the 14th century onwards, the Ottoman conquest of the Balkans divided Europe into a Christian Europe in which there were virtually no Muslims, and an Ottoman Europe dominated by Muslim rule but mainly populated by Christians.
The colonial legacy
In the 19th century and the early 20th century, the Ottoman Empire was shrinking on all sides, replaced by the European powers. But it would soon be the turn of the latter to be forced to step aside faced with the desire for independence of the indigenous populations. The decolonization of these people groups that were often Muslim would also leave its mark on Europe as well.
A section dedicated to the contemporary period has also been added to these three legacies.ACMI’s Wonderland exhibition is a convergence of digital and analogue celebrating the power of storytelling and the moving image, as afforded by the magical and timeless stories of Lewis Carrol -Wonderland is an exhibition which takes visitors on an immersive journey like no other.
Premiering in 2018 at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), Wonderland draws together a remarkable selection of behind-the-scenes material, celebrating Alice across time, cultures and media. This entirely original exhibition brings ACMI’s extensive curatorial, technological and creative expertise, together with a leading team of Australian collaborators to create an interactively engaging experience told through the evolution of special effects; from pre-cinema and silent films, to animation, puppetry, live action and CGI.
Designed and built as a series of theatrical environments integrating sound, sets, lighting and immersive technologies, Wonderland inspires exploration and curiosity. Visitors venture through enchanted Carroll inspired story-worlds; as they ‘Fall down the Rabbit hole’, explore the ‘Hallway of Doors’, or take a seat at the ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ – an immersive 3D printed, 360⁰ projection mapped room. Or perhaps engage in the paper-to-digital activity in the Queens Croquet Ground or immerse themselves within the 180⁰-18-screen synchronised video artwork showcasing Alice in popular culture.
Guided by the ‘Lost Map of Wonderland’, visitors can unlock further secrets, stories and riddles.
This innovative and imaginative take on a traditional exhibition guide, the Map incorporates old-style storytelling with hidden NFC digital technology, providing visitors with a companion experience that is surprising, revealing and magical.
Winner of the 2019 Best of GLAMi Awards, Wonderland entices visitors to Fall down the rabbit hole into an enchanted world, where expectations are upended and curiosity is rewarded.
