A POETIC TOUR COMBINING SCIENCE AND FICTION TO EXPLORE THE NATURAL HISTORY OF OUR PLANET
The fruit of a collaboration with the artists’ collective The Parisianer, the exhibition presents large, original illustrations that bring to life the great naturalist discoveries, from geological times—to the distant future.
A JOURNEY BACK IN TIME
Understanding the origin of life, exhibiting a diplodocus for the first time, discovering the sexuality of plants… 21 covers of a fictitious magazine retrace the highlights of our planet’s history and of naturalist discoveries.
COMBINING SCIENCE AND FICTION
By depicting illustrious figures such as Voltaire or Buffon in humorous situations, the exhibition also imagines the future of our planet through science fiction scenarios about the melting of the ice cap or the colonisation of Mars.
SIX AUDIO RECORDINGS
Six of the illustrations are accompanied by sound recordings of the adventures of Jeanne, an intrepid young reporter who travels through time, meeting historical and fictional figures.
