4.543 Billion. The Matter Of Matter

Exhibition, CAPC, Bordeaux, France.


From June 29, 2017 until January 7, 2018
With contributions from more than 30 artists, 4.543 billion. The matter of matter is a major exhibition that addresses works of art, collections, and cultural histories in relation to ecological processes and a geological scale of time. It presents a continuum of materials and temporal landscapes – films, works on paper, photographs, sculptures, documents, and other meaningful things – and rings from the CAPC building’s former life as a warehouse for colonial commodities whose lime one walls were once deep in the ground and whose wooden beams were once part of a forest.
