Mette Ingvartsen

The Artificial Nature Project


    • Centre Pompidou
      November 28 to December 1

    In Mette Ingvartsen’s work, the animate and the inanimate, the organic and the mechanical often come to merge. In this new piece, spectators observe processes of transformation and circulation, as if looking through a giant microscope. The result is an allegory of man’s place in its environment, the illusion of control and the entropy of the living.
