The Explorer project aims to bring together ten French and English emerging artists in the framework of an exhibition.


The purpose of the exhibition is to challenge the possibility of exploration and adventure in the context of a “terra cognita” where every territory is mapped out and pictured. The exhibition will attempt to highlight new ways of exploration, physical, virtual , mental through diversity of artistic processes and means.

However, the potential of exploration of our planet seems to be exhausted . The impulse to discover unknown territories had to moved beyond earth toward the exploration of space. On the top of that, the process of globalisation and the emergence of networks of information and communication freed from any physical space is changing our approach and experience of our surrounding world.
