Sheroanawe Hakihiiwe ‘Les Vivants (Living Worlds)’ at Cartier Foundation

15 Jun 2022

Sheroanawe Hakihiiwe participates in the ongoing exhibition ‘Les Vivants (Living Worlds)’ at Cartier Foundation.

Bringing together over 250 works, coming essentially from its collection, the exhibition offers to challenge our imagination, questioning the limits of anthropocentrism, in order to reinvent, with empathy and humility, a new possible cohabitation on earth with plants and animals.

Contrary to Western tradition, Les Vivants encourages us, by looking and listening, to consider non-humans as our equals within a vast shared world that belongs to all living creatures. The exhibition draws on the contributions of a community of artists and scientists engaged in an aesthetic and existential quest, profoundly marked by the enigmatic beauty of the living world.

Curated by anthropologist Bruce Albert and the General Director of the Fondation Cartier Hervé Chandès, this exhibition–manifesto is part of UTOPIA, the 6th themed exhibition of the lille3000 cultural event that takes place from May 14 to October 2, 2022 at Lille, France.
