    Only Six Buckets for all this Water

    Originating from the Six Bassins of 1964, nine hydro structures have emerged. Only Six Buckets for All This Water uses the riverbed to reflect the limits of human communication and knowledge. With works showing the evasive potential of language or the calculations of ever-changing areas, this exhibition attempts to define that which is constant flux.

    The flood plane… Although communities have historically thrived along river banks for energy, transport and irrigation, the Hydro Concept under, the law Grenelle, promotes a return to the unpredictable natural state capable of provoking mass displacement, submerged architecture, zones non ædificandi.
