Exhibition: Collecting shadows, measuring foam - Naval Medical School

Cultural ,  Exhibition ,  Contemporary art in Rochefort
  • "What fascinated me most about the collections of the Old Naval Medical School was the incredible will of so many men and women to archive the world around them. Describing, reporting, sorting and organizing precisely the plant, the mineral, the animal ... up to the most important and surprising, the human.

    "What fascinated me most about the collections of the Old Naval Medical School was the incredible will of so many men and women to archive the world around them. Describing, reporting, sorting and organizing precisely the plant, the mineral, the animal ... up to the most important and surprising, the human. The Old Naval Medical School brings together two themes that have inspired me for more than ten years: the great explorations and dissection. If these themes seem divergent, on closer inspection, one notices that it is the same mechanism, the same insatiable curiosity that drives scientists, doctors and sailors: the desire to see further. Whether it is beyond the oceans or under the surface of the skin, there is this constant desire to go and meet unknown territories.

    "The exhibition is intended as a negative to the stories, objects associated with surgery and expeditions kept in the museum. For what can be added to this collection, if not to underline the absent, the missing? To note this vain and beautiful quest: that of collecting impossible shadows, attempting to measure fleeting scum.
