April 8 > October 8, 2023
Around the theme (ZERO) GRAVITY, twenty-one artists take over the new exhibition space from April 8 to October 8, 2023, for an invitation to suspend time, experience an exceptional moment between earth and sky, in a floating world, suspended (or suspension ), a disconnection between two worlds in motion, made up of fleeting, unusual, poetic visions…
Because it is indeed about weightlessness, a subject that challenges, seduces, intrigues… Vast field from which emerged the themes and the course of the scenography.
A set of creations, emblematic for some and new productions for others, as well as a space taken over by Compagnie Adrien M & Claire B for guests and the presentation of a set of works from the collection of the Observatoire de l'Espace, the cultural laboratory of CNES, including the film workIndoor telescope, the first performance performed in situ on the International Space Station from a protocol developed by the artist Eduardo Kac and executed by the astronaut Thomas Pesquet, CAMPREDON art & image invites to a unique journey, between dream and reality.
Are we sure of what we see? Perception, after all personal, is the first filter through which images circulate, p but our brain finishes the work and restores a message produced by its analysis including our education, our memories and our expectations.

Our universe, which questions and fascinates every Being on Earth as long as he looks up, but also the laws of terrestrial attraction or even the infinite cosmos, between wonder and existential questioning.

“Oh time suspend your flight! ”
Like Alphonse de Lamartine who never dreamed of freezing, even for a moment, a sweet moment, the spontaneity of an exploit, a feeling experienced?

Go inside the time of photographic pause, work in its thickness, beyond aesthetic pleasure, to better revel in the ephemeral and the visual vibration, or even suggest a world in suspension, vaporous and alive...
