For spring 2024, IAC is presenting an exhibition of recent acquisitions from its collection linked to the research of the "Laboratoire espace cerveau".

Since 2016, in the age of the Anthropocene and as part of the series "Comment habiter des mondes cosmomorphes", the "Laboratoire espace cerveau" has extended its field of exploration to the organic links that unite humans to the cosmos, in order to reassess our place within the living world and learn to recompose a shared world, both human and non-human. From biology to geology to anthropology, a wealth of research is revealing the porosity and interdependence of beings and environments. Little by little, our conceptions are being transformed: the dualistic principles of a Western approach are giving way to another "future" opening up towards a vision of the world that is no longer anthropocentric but "cosmomorphic". Throughout the Laboratory's research, more than a change in our vision of the world, it is the need to profoundly transform our ways of being that has emerged. How does the current planetary crisis force us to transform our ways of being in the world, and how does it call us to action? And how can we learn to transform ourselves, and each other?

The exhibition "Pratiques cosmomorphes - (Ré)générer le vivant", considers the multiplicity of artistic practices brought together here as potential modes of this necessary transformation, the creation- the sensitive and the imaginary as tools for renewing our visions of the world in order to be able to "(re)generate the living".

Laboratoire espace cerveau 


Initiated in 2009 by artist Ann Veronica Janssens and Nathalie Ergino, the "Laboratoire espace cerveau" brings together researchers and artists to share their explorations. Initially, the focus was on exploring the body's relationship to space through the process of immersion and perceptual experience, then from 2016, in the face of the Anthropocene, on the vital bonds of coexistence that unite human beings. Based on artistic experimentation, he favors intuition as a driving force, shared imaginary worlds as a foundation and collective intelligence as a modus operandi. Transdisciplinary, collective and transversal, the Laboratory develops in stages, in the form of "stations". Mobile units of exploration, these stations consist of study days and "works under study", and take place both "in situ" at IAC and "ex situ" in other locations.
