Borderline(s) Investigation #2

Practical solutions to the problems at hand
Création 2022
Work in progress

The new public report of the Group for Research and Action in Limitology (GRAL) will be about limits and boundaries, feedback loops, exobiology and space agriculture, “influence machines”, and physical assignments.
After tackling the theme of ecological and civilizational collapse, and having questioned the disappearance of the Greenland Vikings (Borderline(s) Investigation #1 created in November 2018), Frédéric Ferrer will be working on the second part of this diptych on the limits and frontiers of the world. This show, Borderline(s) Investigation #2, produced with the same creative team as the first, will offer a shift in perspective, in order to move from the universal to the individual, from global to local, from civilization as a whole to the subject, from the development choices that societies make to the question of the body and the living bodies onto which these choices are imposed. The show’s writing will be based on scientific research work in micro-geography, biology, exobiology, ecology, and medicine, in order to question the limits of living things on the scale of beings (human and non-human).
