throughout his career, mathieu lehanneur has developed a singular and innovative approach in the field of design. referencing science, technology, craftsmanship, and the arts, he has created unprecedented connections between the living world and that of objects, from therapeutic molecules to ancestral symbols. in his practice, biology blends with artistry, primitive nature mingles with digital tools and time merges with the weather.

coming from the astrophysical vocabulary, the title of the exhibition — particle horizon — evokes the the micro and the macro of the universe, a source of inspiration for creators, specially during the renaissance. thus, the show functions as a multitude of open doors to our human condition of sentient beings, thinking and breathing.

‘I never wanted to choose a domain, a material or a function,’ says mathieu lehanneur. ‘I am more interested in the human adventure since we have left the cave. my objects feed on who we are, deeply: our instincts, our beliefs, our perceptions or our physiology. we are living beings surrounded by things. things that reflect us and help project ourselves forward.’
