Trilogy: Memory of the glaciers – Mir – Bepicolombo

Trilogy: Memory of the glaciers – Mir – Bepicolombo

An evening organized by COAL in the framework of the exhibition Tierra del Fuego by Angelika Markul, presented at the Museum of Hunting and Nature.

Angelika Markul presents for the first time in France her trilogy in progress which reveals three states and stages of human history, from its origin to its disappearance. The Memory of the Glaciers, the heart of the Tierra Del Fuego exhibition presented at the museum, tells the story of the tragic collapse of a glacier in southern Patagonia and opens with the discovery of the Churyumov-Guerasimenko comet, which may hold an explanation for the origin of life on earth. Mir explores man-made terrestrial abysses and BepiColombo, the conquest of space. After the screening of Memory of the GlaciersThe artist and Eric Lorigny, head of the FIMOC (French Instrument Mars Operation Centre) of the CNES, will confront these images of creations and destructions caused by man, leading to his own loss, with the state of Martian research which leads to a better understanding of the creation of the world, of what we are made of and how we were created.
