The Oceanographic Museum of Monaco presents the monographic Borderline Exhibition by artist Philippe Pasqua. His monumental works, most of which have been tailor-made for this show, will stand alongside the Museum’s mythical collection.

In his work Philippe Pasqua experiments with the notion of limits: the artist expresses his sensitivity and questions his audience’s relationship with nature, death, and rebirth. he plays with the ambiguous connection between mankind and the marine world, a relationship defined by both fear and fascination, in order to confront his audience with the current issues of biodiversity protection.

Violent and raw, his oeuvre disturbs as much as it fascinates, placing the visitor in a dilemma : to gaze intently or to turn away, a mechanism of defense rather than one of indifference.
