Worn as an everyday garment by some and considered by others to be contrived or uncomfortable, the definition of the sari has multiple subjectivities. Conventionally an unstitched drape wrapped around the body, which can be draped in multiple ways, its unfixed form has enabled it to morph and be absorbent of cultural influences. 

 

In recent years the sari has been reinvented. The urban youth who previously associated the sari with formal wear can now be found wearing saris and sneakers on their commutes to work. Designers are experimenting with hybrid forms such as sari gowns and dresses, pre-draped saris and innovative materials such as steel. 


Today the sari manifests as a garment subject to transformation, an expression of identity and resistance, and a crafted object with layers of cultural meanings. This exhibition positions the sari as a designed object from these three perspectives.

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 photographer, filmmaker and artist, Agnès Varda, spent 70 years creating a personal work which was fundamentally rooted in its time. She was a trailblazer of the New Wave movement and one of the rare women of her generation to have had a successful career as a filmmaker. 


Her filmography boasts over forty short and feature-length films between fiction and documentary, including her greatest hits, Cléo from 5 to 7 (Cléo de 5 à 7) (1962), Le Bonheur (which won the Louis Delluc Prize in 1965), Vagabond (Sans toit ni loi) (which won a Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1985) and The Gleaners and I (Les Glaneurs et la glaneuse) (2000). 


Her early interest in painting and literature, along with her experience in theatre, strongly shaped her conception of the seventh art. A globetrotter and artist of conviction, Varda also paid close attention to the world and social upheavals. The themes of feminism, ecology and marginality transect her work, making it very relevant to the modern day.

Put your visitors at the center of the action as they explore today’s digital world

through over a dozen larger-than-life exhibits in technology, art, play, and media,

presented from a powerful new perspective they’ve never imagined.


In Digital Me, visitors meet themselves in the digital world, witness the traces

they leave behind, and explore how their every action and image is preserved

and stored in the history of the web. They’ll learn how they appear to others

online and how information about them is collected – sometimes without even

noticing – and how it can affect them in the future.


The colorful, experiential exhibition is suitable for all ages- young children can

experiment with new technologies and surprising exhibits, and adults will gain

a deeper understanding of the implications of our presence on the Internet.

For more than 30 years, the pedagogy on climate has been to explain the greenhouse effect, why we disturb the climate and how to act to limit the damage. This pedagogy has raised awareness of the urgency of climate change, but has not been able to change the course of our greenhouse gas emissions.


That’s why The Climate Show proposes another, innovative, original approach: to tackle this subject during an interactive show by reviewing some of the obstacles that we are unable to overcome, individually and collectively.


This show was designed and produced in collaboration with Climate Voices & Cap Sciences Bordeaux Nouvelle-Aquitaine.


The Climate Show consists of a stage with 3 large screens and bleachers to accommodate 120 people per 45-minute session, equipped with voting remotes.


Invited on stage by GaIA, the planetary conscience, the young Camille, starts a confronting dialogue with her friends about how to solve the climate issue on an individual and collective level.



Supermodel and global fashion icon Claudia Schiffer takes visitors on a personal journey through the fashion industry of the 1990’s. A story told in her own voice with contributions from legendary fashion photographers, designers, editors and supermodels, whose energy and vision – like Claudia’s – captivated and shaped the decade.

CAPTIVATE! was successfully presented for the first time in the Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf/Germany.

The international touring of the exhibition is a cooperation project between the Kunstpalast and Expona.

The exhibition is an invitation to rediscover Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece through stories and sensory experiences that take place on different levels:

– the circuit is punctuated with encounters with the “landscape-skin” that envelops the entire exhibition space. It immerses visitors in a place inspired by the works of Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519), such as the Mona Lisa, Virgin of the Rocks and The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne and offers interactive experiences for the public. The landscapes from these works come together and interact to create a panoramic world that brings the space to life. Here digital media, which is often thought of as a “cold” format, takes on an appealing sensitive and emotive dimension, with unusual graphic textures.

– different visual tales recount the stories, mysteries, contemporary context and process behind this painting that has become an icon. Visitors meander through visual narratives that are simultaneously instructive, sensory and contemplative.

The format of The Mona Lisa: an immersive exhibition invites a wide audience to experience an exhibition, and each individual’s relationship with this emblematic work, in a brand new way. This is no minor ambition, as it involves combining aesthetic, narrative and technological innovations while remaining mindful of accessibility and audience engagement.

This creation offers a unique vision of Leonardo da Vinci’s work, both precise and well-researched, as well as a powerful and original artistic perspective.


Visitors can expand and share their knowledge of the topics covered in the exhibition through the experiences and interaction offered by the fun, appealing and intuitive modules, where technological innovation lends itself to education and exploration.
