ARLES 2020


Depuis près de deux mois, les Rencontres d’Arles ont envisagé tous les scénarios pour tenter de s’adapter à une situation sans précédent et maintenir le festival dans le respect des mesures qui s’imposent.
Mais face à l’impossibilité de produire les expositions, d’équiper les lieux, face à l’interruption des échanges internationaux, et en tenant compte des nouvelles recommandations du gouvernement, nous devons renoncer à organiser l’édition 2020 des Rencontres d’Arles.

H+ focuses on transhumanism, a movement advocating the use of science and technology to enhance humans’ physical and mental abilities. H+’s photographs are elliptical and have little context. Taken one by one, they baffle more than they explain. Seen together, they weave a web of discourse. Artificial, they resemble their subject: it is no longer known whether the living die by becoming machines or inanimate objects spring to life. H+ talks about our bodies, our everyday lives and our relationship to technology, as well as opens up future prospects. No response is given, but the exhibition can work both as a tool to think about a key issue of our time and as a poetic space that confronts us with the absurdity of our finiteness.

Exhibition produced in partnership with the Musée d’art de Pully.
Publication: H+, coedition Kehrer Verlag and Actes Sud, 2018.
