An exhibition of the monumental works of Philippe Pasqua, most of which were made especially for the event, will be on show alongside the Oceanographic Museum’s own collections from May 5 until September 30, 2017.

Mr Pasqua, a native of Grasse, has previously exhibited in New York, Hanover, Paris and Moscow. The Museum says that in renewing its commitment to both scientific knowledge and contemporary works, it is once again opening its doors to the art of today to create a lively dialogue, as was the case during the major “Taba Naba” exhibition in 2016 devoted to Aboriginal and Oceanic art.

The exhibition “Borderline” pushes the boundaries with work that is both violent and immodest, both disconcerting and fascinating. According to the organisers, Mr Pasqua’s work questions viewers about their relationship to nature, death and rebirth, while also confronting the current challenges of protecting biodiversity.

Twelve monumental works are being shown, including seven previously unseen. These are on display throughout the venue – from the forecourt to the panoramic terrace and on the cliff of the Rock, below the historic building itself.
