Le Fresnoy – Studio national and TBA21–Academy present Océans. Une vision du monde au rythme des vagues, an exhibition exploring a different way of engaging with the oceans and the world we inhabit.


Océans seeks to comprehend our histories as trajectories tossed by waves, from ocean crossings to systems of exchange, myths, and microbial origins. It highlights processes of cultural adaptation and material change, presenting a rich framework for understanding the coalescing polarities of contemporaneity and history, science and poetics, routes and roots, and ourselves—mostly land-dwelling humans—with the oceans and their many and diverse inhabitants.
