STELLAR SCAPE. New space conquests

With its deep skies and unsolved mysteries, space captivates humanity. While human activities are disrupting our planet and its ecosystem, it represents a frontier to explore, a resource to exploit and a source of daydreams. It is in this context that the Stellar Scape exhibition opens its doors from June 22, 2024 to January 26, 2025 at the Pavillon de Namur.

Located on the Esplanade de la Citadelle in Namur, the former Belgian pavilion of the Universal Exhibition in Milan is now the new Walloon reference place in terms of digital culture, supported by the initiative of KIKK, a major player in the technology,  cultural and creative industries sector, whose mission is to promote exploration and innovation in the fields of art, science and technology

The Stellar Scape exhibition brings this vision to life. Under the direction of curators Marie du Chastel and Jos Auzende, it brings together around twenty international artists and researchers who explore the imagination of astronomy and the renewal of space exploration in the Anthropocene era.

Through artistic installations, immersive environments, scientific innovations and speculative projects, Stellar Scape offers us an experience to live with the whole body and raises the challenges of collective reflection on our place in the universe. It interweaves the geopolitical themes of space exploration, sensitive experiences of space representation or the effects of the alteration of materials in an extraterrestrial environment.

Questioning our relationship to space, Stellar Scape also restores creations developed in “Art & science” residencies, in association with the UNamur Educational Astronomical Observatory: they allowed the artists to collaborate with André Füzfa, a physicist specializing in cosmology and relativistic gravitation. Following on from previous exhibitions, the LAB, a space dedicated to research and innovation, brings together Belgian and European companies active in the field of astronomy, notably the prototypes of A.M.O.S, Aerospacelab, Aldoria and Latitude.

With: Quadrature (Germany), Alessia Sanna & Alexandre Weisser (France), Kyle McDonald & Jonas Jongejan (USA, Denmark), Agnès Meyer Brandis (Germany), Félicie d’Estienne d’Orves (France), Kongo Astronauts (Kongo/ France), Unfold (Netherlands), Véronique Béland (France), Chevalvert (France), Lucien Bitaux (France), Amélie Bouvier (Belgium) and others still to be discovered.

Open Wednesday to Sunday, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Special opening for school groups on Thursday and Friday mornings
