12 characteristics of living organisms

Moscow, VDNKH. Pavilion No. 31 “Geology”
May 30, 2022 - December 30, 2022
The exhibition “12 Signs of the Living” is a captivating story told by biologists and contemporary artists about how everything that exists on our planet, and even beyond it, is interconnected with each other.

In the exhibition, which consists of traditional museum exhibits, contemporary art illustrates the process of science moving beyond the laboratory. The poetics of artistic expression will help to feel how diverse and beautiful the life of nature is and how thin, and sometimes conditional, the line between what we call “living” and “not living”.
