Illustration de l'événement

A unique experience that takes you along with a mysterious ghost net on the ocean currents. Permanent exhibition. Sunday 21 april, 10am to 11am, 11.15am to 12.15pm.

A drifting fishing net washes up on a beach lined with rubbish. The net moves... could it be an animal trapped inside? But no... it seems that the net comes to life! It even talks! But what does it have to tell us? Shhh, we won't say more ... come and live with us through dance and sounds this crazy experience of an encounter that will take us to follow the marine currents around the planet and that could, perhaps, make us think and act in the face of the climate crisis.
The result of a unique collaboration between the Geneva-based artist Myriam Boucris of the company Tohu Wa Bohu, the Australian artist Lynnette Griffiths and the MEG, this discovery tour offers you an encounter that evokes the relationship between the islanders of the Torres Strait in Australia and the sea and its inhabitants, and reminds us of our responsibility towards our environment.

The activity is for children aged from 2 to 5 and over accompanied by an adult.

The activity will take place twice during the day, once from 10.15am to 11am and again from 11.15am to 12pm.

This event is free of charge and without registration (subject to availability). Please arrive at least 5 minutes before the start of the activity at the MEG reception.
