Exhibition: Exhumer le futur par Maarten Vanden Eynde

The exhibition 'Exhuming the Future' is based on a book of the same name, which provides an overview of the artistic career of artist Maarten Vanden Eynde over the last twenty years, a period marked by many technological advances, but also by a succession of crises. The world's population and, as a result, energy consumption and needs have continued to grow, confronting us with the finiteness of raw materials, extreme climatic phenomena, an overabundance of waste and the loss of the planet's biodiversity.
In Mulhouse, a selection of his works is organised around the industrial question, that of production processes, the transformation of raw materials and products.
For the exhibition, Maarten Vanden Eynde has designed Fat Man 3D, a new piece that literally alludes to the bomb dropped on Nagasaki in Japan in 1945, as it uses the code name of the nuclear weapon.
With this work, he links the three countries in which his personal history is embedded. The Congo, which provides raw materials such as cotton and uranium. France, and in particular the industry in Mulhouse, which transforms cotton fibre into manufactured yarn. Belgium, which shapes the cotton into exceptional bobbin lace.
The whole thing takes the form of an explosive installation suspended in the entrance hall of the art centre!
