Exhibition "The invisibles becomes visible" - Sevilla
On the occasion of the Marlice international forum on marine litter and the circular economy, the Seville Aquarium is hosting the exhibition "The invisible becomes visible" until 12 June 2022. A true immersion in a microscopic universe, the exhibition invites us to question our role and place as human beings in our environment.
The exhibition "The invisible becomes visible" grew out of the encounter between Dr Kirby and a group of photographers and researchers, including Jean Noviel, Thomais Vlachogianni and the LEESU laboratory. Enlarging the microscopic and becoming immersed in this infinitely small and infinitely rich universe provides the opportunity to visualise the important role plankton plays in the way life functions, but also to note the presence of microplastics.
"The invisible becomes visible" highlights the dangers that threaten the food chain, and which are linked to our consumption patterns and the way we manage waste. Through this exhibition, Surfrider Foundation Europe has created a blend of artistic photography and education in order to establish links between the photographs and our daily consumer habits. Making the invisible visible is a way of stimulating awareness and showing the impact human activity has on our environment : humans affect it at all levels, right down to the smallest living organism.
The exhibition was conceived by Surfrider Foundation Europe's Art Campus, a project aimed at putting art at the heart of the link between the environment and human beings, and supported by the European Commission.
