Antibodies. How we inhabit the world. Palais de Tokyo Paris
The exhibition Antibodies platforms the voices of 20 artists from the French and international artistic scene. With recent and new works they take the pulse of our ability to bond together and help us rethink how we inhabit the world. The artistic discussion is inspired by the worldwide experience of lockdown and the adoption of social and physical distancing.
Becoming aware of our vulnerability triggered the rise of borders, fences and barriers around our bodies, homes, social circles and countries, bristled with concerns and suspicions. This situation has increased the already existing inequalities, when it comes to class privilege and exposure to risks. But in the deepening separation between public and private, we became aware that we actually touch and are touched more than we used to, which compels us to redefine our connections as well as our proximities.
