Marguerite Humeau: Birth Canal

The New Museum presents the first U.S. solo museum exhibition by Marguerite Humeau (born 1986, Cholet, France), debuting a new installation of sculpture and sound.

Humeau’s work often centers on the origins of humankind and associated histories of language, love, spirituality, and war. Each of the artist’s projects is prefaced by a period of intense investigation during which she engages diverse authorities on her chosen subject, including historians, anthropologists, paleontologists, zoologists, explorers, linguists, and engineers. Through her interdisciplinary, speculative inquiry, she enriches her own thinking as an artist and researcher, and refashions historical quests to reflect the information age in which we live.
