For the fifteenth anniversary of espace Labo, in collaboration with Ceel Mogami de Haas, we have imagined an exhibition project which will open this fall and will evolve until spring 2024.
Over the course of our discussions, the idea of giving shape to a collective exhibition project was born, which stems from Ceel’s ongoing research on the cultural history of gardens. What particularly interests us is considering the garden as a political, social, ecological and artistic laboratory and a space of resistance and experimentation.
A series of exhibitions will take the shape of gardens and explore how gardens and resistance are related, how their histories intersect, and how their various occurrences in the visual arts illuminate this affiliation. This exhibition also recounts the different ways in which humans and non-humans approach this resistance.
The exhibition cycle, titled Owlet vision in a blinding time gathers a group of international artists who will engage with these different topics and whose works, once distributed in space, will form a garden of love and care.
