EMOTION, THE NEW ULTIMATE LUXURY


A place of encounters and experimentation both
« in the margin » and « at the heart » of the Biennale.

In partnership with LES MERVEILLES, a space of exploration where everyone can afford the luxury of listening to themselves and listening to the world. THE EMOTION SQUARE is conceived as a large wooden cabin of organic form reminiscent of a giant heart, allegory of the central organ of our emotions.

RAISE AWARENESS & ENLIGHTEN THROUGH ART

Since 2009, 1.618 has dedicated an area to contemporary art. Art, in response to a society in search of meaning, questions consciences and encourages reflection on the world around us.

The exhibition Pure Waste, in the fifth « carte blanche » entrusted to COAL by the 1.618 Biennale, gathers the works of international artists who, in sublimating waste, pay tribute to the value and necessity of the humblest materials, to engage visitors in the challenges of Today.

Oceans of plastic, food waste, disposable materials, rubbish piling up endlessly in our garbage cans, on our sidewalks; nature twisted by humanity, electronic carcasses, toxic waste, tainted resources, pollutants which accumulate everywhere on the planet … These are the images from around the world which haunt us without profoundly modifying our own behaviour and nor that of our industries. Yet in this world of limited resources, each scrap of material is a resource that has the potential to become the raw material for something else. In nature, matter moves in a continuum where the notion of rejection does not exist.

The artists of Pure Waste magnify, reveal or disguise the potential and qualities of neglected matter, use the absurd to dismantle the industry of false solutions and greenwashing, and dare to attempt to  reverse the cycle of destruction. Toxic or waste material turns into forest, objects are returned to their essential function or acquire some unexpected ones, while our beliefs, they crack, suddenly becoming as ephemeral as the screens of our iPhones …
