Marguerite Humeau

MA work

Reality is becoming increasingly opaque, and could be seen as a ‘permanent fiction’.


Speculations about what happens in scientific laboratories are as powerful as reality itself. We invent stories about the experiments that take place there: science fictions.


My work explores the fictional potential of scientific experiments and the role of science in the creation of contemporary myths. This speculative territory provides many narrative and performative opportunities.


The work is introduced as an epic quest, setting up an enigma, documenting the journey and presenting its final outcomes.
