The event, co-curated by Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel and Sam Thorne, is a collaboration between Nottingham Contemporary and Paris’ Palais de Tokyo where it has already opened in June of this year. The multi-sensory exhibition explores space and time through a choir of 108 billion voices, immersing us in an installation that embarks on a journey back to the origins of life and towards the vision of a human-less future.
The project grew out of conversations with experts in fields such as zoology and re-enacts “the moment when a gene – FOXP2 – mutated, allowing our ancestors to develop language.”
