Kinetic & Interactive Installations
embodied nature invites us to regard all species, including mankind, as forming part of a whole, and to reflect on the importance of understanding this interconnectedness. More than 100 global species are represented, all on the same scale, to emphasize the equality of their roles in the ecosystem.
When visitors approach the work, they see themselves as if in a mirror – except that, instead of their reflection, what appears before them is an image of nature in all its diversity. The silhouette is composed of various species, which evokes a cognitive self-awareness that each of us is a part of nature.
embodied nature is thus an individual experience with a collective reality. This interactive installation is both a creative work and an emotional experience: art evokes an emotional response that can trigger deeper understanding and awareness. The artistic vision is in line with the commitment of Maison Perrier-Jouët. To nurture a sense of belonging to nature, to have a positive impact on the ecosystem, to implement a savoir-faire inspired by the living world – these priorities are at the heart of the House’s thinking and action now and in the future.
more than 100 artistic representations of species from all over the world are suspended in the space and displayed in “cabinet de curiosités”
