« To see the world in a grain of sand; and a heaven in a wild flower. Hold infinity in the palm of your hand; And eternity in an hour» So begins William Blake’s poem Auguries of Innocence. Urging us to see with eyes anew, Blake condenses in a few words the immensity of life and its ephemeral essence. Mikhail Margolis exhibition « Here we are » follows the same vision and, through an interactive and immersive experience, reduces us to a « primitive » entity, stripping us from most of our identity. The gallery space is transformed into a laboratory where we are observed and onlookers. As you enter a void and float in a tapestry made of keyboards, all landmarks are lost and the sole thing remaining is movement and sound. Regardless of our social condition or the species we belong to, mouvement and change are the norm fusing us in an interspecies soup. Thus, by bridging together humans and unicellular organisms, the artist pushes us to question our place on earth. Although this is a transient experience, an imprint will prevail. Your life as an amoeba will be digitised, classified and will be immediately transformed into an artwork that will be viewed at the gallery and live on. Looking through microscopes with kaleidoscopic vision will hopefully allow us to put things into perspective.
