Dear Shaded Viewers,
ASVOF highly recommends you take a visit to the Tomas Saraceno ON AIR exhibition that is at Palais de Tokyo until January 6th. ON AIR is about the forces and entities that float in the air and the interactions with us: from CO2 to cosmic dust, from radio infrastructures to reimagined forridors of mobility. “the invisible histories that compose the ecologies we are part of and invites us to poetically rethink different ways of inhabiting the world – and of being human. I only show you the work of the spiders but there is so much more to explore from the floating transparent bubbles, the artworks are fragile and ephermeral.
The exhibition asks the viewer to think about the Earth and its resources and the threat that currently exists for entire ecologies. We are asked to rethink our relationship with the planet through new modes of knowledge production. Our current approach to human activities have an impact so important that they profoundly modify terrestrial ecologies. Aerocene is an interdisciplinary artistic project initiated by Tomas Saraceno that seeks to reactivate a common imaginary to collaborate ethically with the atmosphere and the environment, visitors are invited to collectively engage in an exercise of urgent planetary attunement.
ON AIR collaborations include bringing together scientific institutions, research groups, activists, local communities, visitors, musicians, philosphers, non-human and celestial phenomena.
On November 23rd and December 14th a symposium brings together researchers, activists and artists within the exhibition spaces.
Curator: Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel
