The OVNi – edition 2022 statement is an imaginary of the possibilities of follies as places and ideas. The proposal « The World is All That Is », which is deployed in the Grande Halle of 109-Pôle de cultures contemporaines, is a collective layout that is part of a critical relationship between humans being and the Earth and the biological.
Far from an inventory, the artistic projects presented share some conceptual experiments of our environment and its ability to absorb disorder. Artworks formalized thinking nature or the devouring of this one and refer to organic or inorganic, floral, mineral, aquatic or aerial vulnerabilities. Works also relate the hypotheses of a balance between the environments, the resources and the presence of the living beings.
Philosophers and scientists agree on this Zone of Uncertainty that we have just penetrated. They say the disruptions resulting from the interactions of the technosphere on the biosphere. They talk about the metasystems born from the New Technologies and their hybrid forms. But when they tell us that « 90 % of the vegetal biodiversity has been able to operate the greatest conquest of the terrestrial space » they also tell us about the resilience of the living.
