The French artist's work explores time and space.

Marguerite Humeau has described herself as an 'Indiana Jones in Google times'. Her new works grew out of conversations with zoologists – one sound installation of 108 billion voices re-enacts the moment when the FOXP2 gene mutated, allowing our ancestors to develop language.

Also included is a piece Humeau describes as a 'biological showroom', featuring elephants engaged in an elaborate mourning ritual.
