Curated by Anja Henckel and Nadim Samman, Humeau’s solo exhibition loops between the aesthetics of prehistory and occult biology and those of science fiction and the Information Age, producing works across multiple mediums that stage “the crossing of great distances in time and space, transitions between animal and mineral, and encounters between personal desires and natural forces”.
From her sound-producing sculptures modeled after fossils of extinct beasts, to her fictional trip to Jupiter’s icy moon and the ‘angelic organ’ created after a forbidden 18th century instrument, Humeau’s exhibition is an unnerving nod to the creatures of past and present, and is accompanied by a talk with the artist on September 18 titled How Near? How Far?.
