Le Laboratoire de la Nature

Le Laboratoire de la nature is about the representation of nature and, more particularly, Western man’s relation to nature, based on the construction of scientific discourses that reveal our penchant for classification and collection.
At the same time, this exhibition evokes the modernity of the inventors of photography at a time when scientific developments were revolutionising man’s vision of nature.

The exhibition comes across as a contemporary homage to William Henry Fox Talbot, best known as the inventor of the photographic process which bears his name.
