Martin Messier. 1 drop 1000 years


Canadian artist Martin Messier, a recurring act in L.E.V. throughout all these years, will showcase his new project 1 drop 1000 years, based on a vital process for balance in life: homeostasis, a phenomenon which allows an organism to keep the right temperature, applied in this case to ocean currents.

Seeking to highlight the finesse of our homeostatic system and the fragility of its balance, the artist proposes an artistic interpretation of these intimate and global currents that happen to be essential to the survival of our species and its environment, and which have been slowed down during the last 200 years due to human activity.
