Rencontres au pôle Nord

23rd May 2024 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

In collaboration with the Swiss Polar Institute, Ferme-Asile organises a guided tour of the GRAND NORD exhibition in the company of a scientist and an artist for a polyphonic exchange as they comment on the exhibited artworks and put their perspectives in dialogue.

The tour will be in French only.

The exhibition GRAND NORD unites works by 27 artists, created or designed during artist residencies on sailboats in the Arctic region. Initiated by artist and curator Alexia Turlin, this exhibition is an opportunity to observe how these floating residencies give rise to new ideas and creative processes. Collective and highly personal, these inner journeys are also spatial explorations.
The GRAND NORD exhibition space brings together works at the crossroads of different artistic media and invites us to question our representations of the North Pole and to reflect on how this region, with its deep cultural history and geopolitical importance, reveals our relationship to life and to our planet.
With the participation of : Alexia Turlin, Ambroise Héritier, Anaëlle Clot, Anaïs Nariman Aïk, Anne-Sophie Subilia, Benjamin Ruffieux, Céline Ducret, Christian Bovey, Claire Frachebourg, Colline Grosjean, Fabian Branas, Fanny Zambaz, Fred Bott, Gwennaël Bolomey, Isabelle Pralong, Jean-Louis Johannides, Jessica Decorvet, Katharina Kreil, Laure Akash, Laure Gonthier, Marylaure Décurnex, MarieMo, Matthieu Berthod, Mélanie Rouiller, Michèle Pralong, Prosper Thon, Rudy Decelière.
