CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

The 2021 edition of Vraiment ??? is dedicated to the theme of water: from streams to sea areas, from the essential H2O to the symbolism of liquid, whether we are talking about the exploitation caused by tourism, the lack or the overflow of water, water as a vital element, the sharing of resources or the crossing of sea areas to escape danger or to imagine a better life. This year, Vraiment ??? is exhibiting a selection of Anita Conti's images for this second edition entitled "Eaux Troubles, Eaux Vagabondes".

"In 2018 I have been around the world. I have seen how small and fragile it is.  Wherever I looked, I witnessed many disasters. A dead river for six hundred and fifty kilometers, deformed fish, radioactive forests, children born without eyes, nuclear waste trafficking, falsified reports by corrupted states, drifting plastic waste in the middle of an ocean that has become the first link in a degenerate food chain. How did we let this happen?" -Samuel Bollendorff
25 September 2021 - 1 November 2021
