The very notion of "alive" can be found throughout in the physical field of matter as much as in the intangible digital field, as in prominent artistic disciplines. Bio-, neuro-, become the most frequent prefixes to signal the instability of the living. The new exhibition in the "Mutations/Creations" program traces the archeology of the living and presents the most significant creations and innovations in the fields of art, design, architecture, and music; in particular with the sonic and furtive Biotope imagined by Jean-Luc Hervé. This exhibition, with its evolving material, plays with growth and degeneration and gathers 40 young artists and lab projects.
