Marguerite Humeau, meys

We have realised the film documentation of Marguerite Humeau’s exhibition at White Cube Bermondsey, London, 5 April – 14 May 2023.

On the occasion of Marguerite Humeau’s solo exhibition, ‘meys’ at White Cube Bermondsey, the artist shares the inspirations, ideas, materials and processes that form the body of work on show.

Marguerite Humeau’s exhibition at White Cube Bermondsey is structured as a journey, incorporating sound, moving image and sculpture and enlisting the collaboration of artificial intelligence as well as hives of skilled craftspeople in order to explore ideas of interdependence and collective intelligence. Leading us from the present and local to a distant, speculative future, Humeau entwines plural narratives around these themes – from a human society in collapse, to a simulation of the secret life inside an insect community, and a projected future gathering of a newly-formed collective in the process of synchronising.
