Naomi Maury is interested in the relationship that humans have with non-human species (plants, animals, machines...). Her sculptures are composed of carefully selected materials, both natural and industrial. The forms created reveal the interconnection and interdependence between species, encouraging the other to feel empathy towards those who suffer. The theme of prostheses and the symbiosis between the living and the non-living remain at the heart of the artist’s work.

The exhibition, co-produced by Les Abattoirs, Musée-Frac Occitanie Toulouse and CEMES-CNRS, follows a residency at the laboratory during which Naomi Maury was invited by the researchers to discover their experiments on matter. This exhibition, which takes place in the Boule, is made up of original pieces created for the occasion, and is the fruit of these encounters.
