Due to the extension of the lockdown our installation ghosts along the way at VOX, centre de l’image contemproaine couldn’t reopen and officially closes today. You can check out the virtual flip-book where we’ve posted a picture every day during the lockdown at @sophietrudeaumichaelagrill Very fittingly our ghosts disappear on Halloween. See you on the other side!

The lockdown has been extended and unfortunately that means there won’t be anymore live shows of Sophie Trudeau and myself in the framework of the exhibtion „Les Années Musicales“ at VOX, centre de l’image contemporaine. Instead you can still stream a recording until the end of October on vimeo. Enjoy!

The term Overview Effect was coined by Frank White in 1987 to describe the cognitive shift reported by a number of astronauts on having looked back from Space at their home planet Earth. The question is, do we need such a distant point of view of the planet we occupy, as a “crew of the Spaceship Earth” to use Buckminster Fuller’s metaphor, to realize that this “spaceship” is slowly running out of “fuel” and that the crew is in need of “oxygen”?
This project seeks to address the issue of the environmental justice that can only be approached through an analysis of the inseparable links between climate change and other forms of injustice related to gender, race, corporate imperialism, indigenous sovereignty, and the importance of decolonising and de-anthropocentrizing the planet in order to reshape an inclusive mindset akin to a multispecies world.
