FOXP2 is the first major solo exhibition in France of artist Marguerite Humeau’s works, currently on view at Palais de Tokyo, Paris. The exhibition comprises of a new series of works created by the French-born artist wherein she aims to reenact the origin of life and the development of conscious life forms.
With myths, speculations and fantasy at the heart of her artwork, Humeau has created a physical and sensory experience that lies at the crossroads between science and fiction. The development of the project involved extensive research and collaboration with numerous scientists and specialists.
