Mathieu Harel Vivier at the CENTRALE box

Mathieu Harel Vivier is interested by New Caledonia as a territory crossed by flows. Due to its situation in the Coral Sea and in the South Pacific Ocean, its mining operations, cultural crossbreeding

and its customs, each portion of the Caledonian landscape is organised around flows that regulate numerous activities and build a singular landscape. Whether sea movements, the arrival

of ore carriers or transportation of the latter, the entire stake of the artist’s researches resides in the displacement of the uses of the Kanak custom towards a reflection on the deployment of images in space. Mixing photographs, sculpture, sound recordings, videos and archives, two facets of this reflection are presented at and the Espace 36 in France.
