Ripples will be held at the Atelier Neerlandais, Paris. The exhibition will be open from the 3rd of November, made possible by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
The Netherlands has a long-standing and deeply interwoven relationship with water. Its dykes, polders, boats, canals and reclaimed land are globally renowned, from international trade to urban infrastructure, the very culture of the country revolves around water.
NOOR is a collective of international, visual creators that have been at the forefront of ethical, and reliable visual journalism for 15 years. This proposal offers an extensive, innovative exhibition, curated from its prestigious archive, and an accompanying programme of public events on the overarching thematic of water, used to explore the nuanced and complex subjects of human life, socio-political inequality, migration and the climate crisis.
Developed by Stefano Carini and Samira Damato, Ripples is a multidisciplinary, immersive and intuitive exploration of this complex, ever-present and global connector through photography, video and research-based components. At its core, the exhibition aims to be both a celebration of this crucial and mysterious element, and an accessible and educational review of its many roles in the socio-political inequalities of the contemporary world.
In order to ensure these values are maintained, innovative modes of upcycling are being explored for the exhibition material usage.
Until November 14th
