Protocell, Antoine Bertin’s immersive performance presented during the latest Nemo Biennial in collaboration with artist NSDOS, invited the audience to question the borders between the living and non-living: A small crowd of 100 people, connected through wireless luminous headsets were guided by narration and explored the night, discovering the capacity of inorganic materials to act as living through electrostatic or heat impulses. Over the past 5 years the sound artist Antoine Bertin has been listening to friction, to rifts, to the invisible and other wonders with a desire to render them palpable and to crystallise them in space.

Observing Earth and its territories through a radically new architectural, sociological
and environmental lens, the architecture and urban design office TVK works upon projects varying greatly in scope and ambition. Currently, the office is in charge of thinking the public spaces of the future Grand Paris Express stations, of designing the Ilot fertile d’Éole, the largest group of solid stone buildings built in Paris since Haussman (19th district of Paris), and of the creation of the Media Village for the Paris Summer 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games.
