“Mediterranating” at the Friche la Belle de Mai

Marfret is sponsoring an exhibition entitled “Méditerraner” (“Mediterranate”) taking place at Marseille’s Friche la Belle de Mai from 27th August to 3rd November 2021.  The free exhibition, in the Friche’s Salle des Machines, invites visitors to reflect upon the subject of openness towards others, at a time when border controls are becoming increasingly strict. The video installations, objects, photographs and books brought together for the exhibition transform the name of the sea, our Mare Nostrum,  into a verb, providing the neologism with a sensory quality. Already, in 2019, Marfret had devoted a newsletter editorial to this new verb, which has been registered with the Académie Française by the art and aesthetics journal Tête-à-Tête.
