Pascal Bernier, Alain Bornain, Sophie Langhor and Laurent Quillet are taking over the Museum of the Hospital Notre-Dame à la Rose in Lessines. With multidisciplinary proposals, unique or representative of their productions, this artist quartet offers an exhibition in symbiosis and in resonance with this site charged with existential questions.
An exhibition on fertility, birth, childbirth … from ancient myths to today’s questions … Stories of birth, a scientific and historical exploration of conception, pregnancy, childbirth and their social repercussions. From ancient myths and practices to the latest medical developments and current debates around obstetrics, the exhibition evokes the progress and questions that have been posed at each stage of history, to women, to doctors, to the society.
In partnership with the Museum of Medicine of Brussels
From the first of october 2019 to the 29th february 2020
