WATER.sync - L'Idylle des arts vivants


Merging visual art and immersive video, L’Idylle arts vivants invites the audience into a sensorial encounter with water. Bringing together artists and aesthetics, this collective exhibition offers a moving experience, where the global water crisis becomes as tangible as it is alarming.


WATER.sync features perfomative compositions with water, ranging from plastic pollution to climate-related flooding, from water shortages to the impactful beauty of its various landscapes.

The immersive scenography, composed of bodies of water from across the world, showcases our transcendent relationship with this “blue gold” we call water.
