Marguerite Humeau

Nottingham Contemporary

15 October 2016 – 15 January 2017

The French artist's work explores time and space.

Marguerite Humeau

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.
