The Institute of Things to Come – Hervé & Maillet

On Thursday 21 September 2017 Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo will open the fourth and last chapter of The Institute of Things to Come, a temporary research centre on futurological scenarios which includes a series of four solo exhibitions and a program of workshops.
The duo Louise Hervé & Chloé Maillet will present The Waterway, a film that combines marine archaeology, thalassotherapy, forgotten civilizations, immortality and post-humanity, offering a contemporary and poetic view on a history of aquatic fantasy.
The artists will also lead a workshop inspired by Jacques Tourneur film The City In The Sea, exploring underwater archaeology and fantasy of eternal subaquatic life confronted to the reality of the conflicts between human and non-human in the Mediterranean.

Ghita Skali

On September 21th Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo will open the first solo show in Italy of Ghita Skali (Casablanca, 1992), curated by Lorenzo Balbi. The exhibition is the result of a six-years-long collaboration with ENSBA Lyon – École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Artes.
Starting from the observation of a new subtropical landscape tipology, Ghita Skali’s research is focused on the aesthetic and social implications of artificial date palms, recently employed in the urban context. The plants are designed thanks to advanced technological and eingeneering studies and today they constitue the most modern camouflage system of telecommunications. At the same time, the palms become a paradigm of contemporary strategies aimed at integrating the natural and the built landscape.
