“Like in a cavern, we enter a magical place: there, suspended up to the height of our bowed heads, like a vegetal canopy, 64 plastic creatures breathe with the regularity of a heartbeat.”

— Eric Clément, La Presse

As a site-specific installation that continues the exploration initiated with the artwork Alveoli, Artificial Kingdom takes shape as a network made up of 64 small inflatable objects that unfold within the space of a small gallery and come to life with a slow expansion-contraction movement when visitors enter the space.
