Migrations climatiques is an exhibition viscerally focused on human and environmental concerns. The subjects staged in the paintings and photographs are human beings and animals subjected to the omnipresent hazards of droughts, floods and climatic or social disturbances. A myriad of innuendos, the magnificence of the paintings is only a pretext to raise awareness.
Colors become subjects of dramaturgy where blacks and indigos of heaven and water evoke the precarious nature of man and his quest for survival on Earth. Here, words about migrations are universal, heard as a thunderous alarm in front of so many disappearances. Anxiety and human pain are reflected in this dramaturgy as well as through the astonishing allegory of the migratory flight of thousands of snow geese at the mercy of the seasons ‘ dysregulations.
Here, art mixes with politics and transmits a social message of an undeniable urgency!
