Marguerite Humeau & Dr Cliff Lauson in Conversation

Part of Adapt to Survive: Notes from the Future

In this talk, hear artist Marguerite Humeau discuss her large-scale sculptural installation with the Hayward Gallery’s Senior Curator, Dr Cliff Lauson.

They discuss the artist’s processes, as well as themes such as modern warfare, surveillance and the hybrid forms of the future.

Conversations from the Future is a talks programme that accompanies the exhibition Adapt to Survive: Notes from the Future at HENI Project Space, Hayward Gallery.

Marguerite Humeau is a London-based French artist whose work seeks to unpack the relationship between fact and fiction, history and collective imagination, and myth and science.

Self-identifying as ‘Indiana Jones in Google Times’, Humeau’s research-based practice calls on the expertise of scientists, archaeologists and anthropologists to reimagine organic forms with biological and mechanical engineering.

Humeau’s work has been presented at Tate Britain, Palais de Tokyo, Serpentine Galleries, Nottingham Contemporary and the Victoria and Albert Museum. She has won numerous prizes, including the British Society of Sculptures Award in 2014.

Dr Cliff Lauson is the Senior Curator at Hayward Gallery.
