Join Nicolas Bourriaud, founder of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and current director of the Mo.Co museum in Montpellier. Curator of the Istanbul Biennial 2019, entitled The Seventh Continent, Nicolas Bourriaud invited artists to ‘explore this territory where humans and non-humans, machines, waste, animal life and trees are colluding to produce new forms.’ The plastic floating created a sort of new continent in the middle of the Pacific, a mass that is the ‘embodiment of the Anthropocene’. He will be introduced by artist Cyril de Commarque whose current exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery, Artificialis, evokes this duality between the anthropocene and the progressive intrusion of the artificial in humans life and art.
