Diane Landry. Celestial Mechanics
May 16 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until June 23, 2023
Diane Landry proposes to young people aged 6 to 12 to immerse themselves in an artistic, philosophical and ecological reflection on the notion of time. Using everyday items and repurposed materials brought to life through movement, light, sound and video, she explores the distinct time scales specific to humanity, nature and the universe. Through her creative, poetic lens, the artist transforms these simple objects – including bicycle wheel rims, plastic bags and water bottles – into long-term signifiers of our lifestyle choices. Diane Landry’s kinetic works will prompt children to ask questions about how time passes – quickly or slowly, as the case may be!
Monday to Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
March 25, April 22, May 27 and June 17, 2023
One Saturday a month, VOX invites you to share a fun time with your children. In addition to visiting the Mécanique Céleste children’s exhibition , special activities await young and old alike!
