The Académie vivante (Living Academy) is a new experimental Research Laboratory established for three years in the Epigenetics and Cell Fate unit (CNRS / Paris-Diderot University), in collaboration with Bétonsalon - Center for Art and Research.
Each academic semester, the Académie vivante invites artists to work within the laboratory on a theme of research. Surrounded by a team established for six months, the artists benefit from privileged access to laboratories to direct experimental educational programs designed for researchers, students and the wider public.
Emmanuelle Lainé is the guest artist of the third occurrence of Académie vivante. She will collaborate with students in epigenetics at the Paris Diderot University. Their work will focus on issues of transparency and assimilation of objects, stemming from experiments at the macroscopic scale.
The Académie vivante is supported by the Fondation Daniel et Nina Carasso.
