The project’s title, De la Lenteur et de la Mesure, refers to values and concepts implying a certain idea of caution and slowness, but also a form of resistance towards overproduction and  overconsumption. And it is indeed
through a slow-curating process that
the preparation of the exhibition has
unfolded, fueled by and expanding
through progressive encounters,
correspondances and coincidences.
