Une clameur | Fort l’Écluse and Château de Voltaire, France

At the initiative of Pays de Gex Agglo, the Atelier Bermuda curatorial team is taking over two heritage sites – Fort l’Écluse and Château de Voltaire.

Bringing together some fifteen local and international artists, the exhibition Une clameur covers the whole spectrum of the visual arts, from painting and performance to sculpture, film, photography and sound installation. A clamour evokes a collective cry, a unified chorus. It is the expression of a mass, a group, a community, which, in an exhalation, makes itself heard. It is a potential clamour, capable of challenging an established order. But the massive energy it releases remains distant, as if promised, indistinct and confused. This title, manifestly sonic and political, underlines the role of a profoundly augural art form.

With works along side Atelier Paysan, Max Bondu, Mathilde Chénin, Faire Argile, Félicien Goguey, Salomé Guillemin, La fabrique éditions, LB Plantes, Lou Masduraud, Louise Hervé & Clovis Maillet, Krishna May and many others.

Ground Zero | Galeria Nova Ogiva, Óbidos

Ground Zero is a collective exhibition bringing together diverse artists working along the themes of ecology, the relation between human and non-human world, the relation between urban and rural living and the activation of material and immaterial heritage. The title refers to a starting point, to the possibility of new beginnings and connections. At the same time, it refers to the ground as a starting point, to the earth as a place where life and creation appear. How could we build from the ground up new ecologies of care between artists and rural communities?

With works along side by Marcelo Moscheta, Cristina Ataide, Susana Anagua, Catarina Leitão, Nithya Iyer, Nii Obodai, Mónica de Miranda and Jermay Michael Gabriel.

L’écriture ou la vie | Mor Charpentier, Paris

The exhibition presents a series of works that are part of continuous research about the fragility and power of the written word. Through the exploration of text, redaction, and the materiality of language, the show explores different narratives of how writing constructs and obfuscates reality and memory. The works highlight the ritual value and the material role of the written word, marking a space filled with tensions where language both preserves and fails to capture the unspeakable.

With works along side by Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Saâdane Afif, Marwa Arsanios, Bianca Bondi, Teresa Margolles, Carlos Motta, Oscar Muñoz, Nicolás Paris and Charwei Tsai.

Eight Degrees | Bildmuseet, Umeå

This exhibition brings together contemporary art exploring our complex relationships with the forest, ranging from ideas of an inviolable intrinsic value to the conception of something to be utilised, such as an economic asset or a space for recreation. What is a forest? And what pressing questions about it are relevant here and now?

Through photography, film, sculpture, drawing, textiles, sound and installations, artists, an architect and a storyteller invite us to reflect on the forest, observed and depicted from various perspectives and with diverse experiences. Their works provoke questions about tradition and future, forestry practices, land conflicts, biological diversity and the forest as a sacred space.

With works by Matti Aikio, Malin Arnell & Åsa Elzén, Gerd Aurell & Micael Norberg, Toms Kokins, Norrakollektivet (Anja Örn, Fanny Carinasdotter, Tomas Örn), Elia Nurvista, Edith Marie Pasquier, Jörgen Stenberg and Lena Ylipää.

Future Plants | ETH Zurich

The future of our plants is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. How do 15 artists respond to this current discourse and the future of plants?

Will they lose their nutrients? Can our soil, seeds, and water be preserved? In this exhibition, 15 well-known artists reflect on these questions together with researchers in the greenhouse of the SAE Sustainable Agroecology Group at ETHZ.

Chaleur Humaine | Dunkerque Triennale

Chaleur humaine, the second Art & Industry Triennial, will unfold over the second half of 2023 in Dunkirk and throughout the Hauts-de-France region. This year’s event will explore the issue of energy. To tackle this far-reaching topic, Triennial initiators and organizers the Frac Grand Large and the LAAC—collectively Le Pôle Art Contemporain de Dunkerque—have invited two independent exhibition curators: Anna Colin and Camille Richert, assisted by Henriette Gillerot. Their curatorial brief focuses on observing how energy challenges arising since the mid-1970s have impacted art, design and architecture, and, conversely, how these fields have shaped challenges, reflections and debates linked to energy, the environment and the planet. The wide ranging works on display will invite onlookers to discover practices linked to excess energy consumption; access to natural resources; issues related to sustainability and environmental responsibility; the transformation of landscapes and people’s relationships with their visible and perceptible surroundings; the ongoing tug-of-war between forces and fatigue in the living world; and the flow of data and energy.
