SAMUEL YAL : “Aux frontières de l’humain”, Musée de L’Homme, Paris


Samuel Yal has been invited by the Musée de l’Homme to design a specific installation for the exhibition “Aux frontières de l’humain”. This exhibition, never before seen at the museum, questions our future as human beings but also, more globally, that of our planet through an itinerary divided into six parts. How far can we go while remaining human, individually and collectively? Has the race for progress not been made at the expense of our planet? These questions at the centre of the exhibition are in line with one of the major questions at the heart of the permanent exhibition at the Galerie de l’Homme: where are we going?

For Samuel Yal, artistic thought is special in that it is based on concepts, reflections and projections that meet the specific constraints of the medium and the studio experience. In this complex weaving of will and chance, an experience of the work is interwoven that in a sense reproduces that of life itself.
