The “event horizon” is a term taken from astrophysics. It designates the limit of what is visible before the extreme density of the black hole that this horizon borders prevents light from escaping. Like many scientific expressions, this one has a literary connotation that makes one think more of an esoteric formula, a weather documentary or a disaster movie… Which is indeed the case: Event Horizon, the movie, retraces the winding path of a team of American scientists and military personnel in search of a ship lost on the edge of a black hole. This B-movie, which has become a cult, gathers all the clichés of the adventure film, which it mixes with a metaphysics of counterpart such as that one generally associates with the mysterious objects which populate the universe and give rise to the most unbridled speculations.


Gare Saint-Sauveur – Lille, France

From May 14 to October 2, 2022

In his latest book, the English scientist James Lovelock announces a new era, the Novacene, which will succeed our current era, the Anthropocene, marked by climatic and environmental upheavals caused by human activity.

Nearly 50 years after his hypothesis, Gaia, which asserted that the Earth is a living being, this famous English environmentalist optimistically predicts a positive relationship between man and the environment, aided by technology. The Novacene exhibition, which takes place in all the spaces of the Gare Saint Sauveur, is part of this post-anthropocene utopia and reveals its signs.

The artists presented are the avant-garde of a new civilization in the making. Seismographers of the last tremors of a hyper carbonated world (Allora & Calzadilla, Julian Charrière, Maarten Vanden Eynde), explorers of the subtle kinships between living beings (Fabien Léaustic), alchemists of climatic phenomena (Marie-Luce Nadal, Bigert & Bergstörm, Bianca Bondi), artists place care (Object Oriented Art, Otobong Nkanga), action (Lucy+Jorge Orta), senses (,Zheng Bo, Anna Komarova) at the heart of a reinvested common good, and raise the ethical questions of this next world (Haroon Mirza). In an eco-design approach, Novacene becomes a place of exploration, dream and union at the time of the last chance to have a viable future.

From May 14 to October 2, 2022

In dialogue with the museum’s collections, The Cosmic Snake explores how artists are inspired and nourished by nature and the living to create utopias. A truly immersive and sensory experience to explore differently our place in the world and to awaken the deep connection that unites us to nature, notably through ancestral rites and practices such as shamanism.
