> The Moss Tag at the Cité de l’Ill neighbourhood – October-November 2022
Young people from the Cité de l’Ill, in association with artists from the exhibition (Co)Habiter, invested the walls of their neighbourhoods in order to create a mural artworks made of living green moss.
> Exhibition (Co)Habiter – July-October 2022
“In our often accelerated, saturated and ultra-connected daily lives, do we still experience the living? Do we still pay attention to the other species that inhabit the Earth and make it habitable? Through the title (Co)Habiter, the ambition of this exhibition is to think about the different ways of co-inhabiting and co-existing with the living in an ecologically and socially damaged world.”
