"Persona" at the Quai Branly Museum
Many objects have a status closer to that of a person or a creature than a simple object. Art objects or high-tech products are regularly given, in their use, unsuspected action capabilities that mostly turn them into people. Like the child who has a passion for his security blanket or the one that plagues against their computer or smartphone by criticizing it for being incompetent or stubborn. Such as the shaman who summons the spirits through a statuette taking the features of the gods. Such transfer or confusion which then operates between the human and the nonhuman and the special and personal relationship between them, in the most diverse cultures is the subject of this exciting exhibition.
Until the 13th of November. www.quaibranly.fr
