The physicist Leïla Haegel, researcher at the Institut de Physique des 2 Infinis in Lyon, was in residence for a month at the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Lyon in autumn 2022. In the context of the exhibition “Incarnations“, she developed a proposal for reflection on the notion of the body as an instrument for experimenting with physical concepts. At the end of this residency, a hypertext was created linking a selection of works presented to the public with contemporary research in fundamental physics. Entitled CORP[uscule]S, it is a textual, sound and visual navigation of the exhibition confronting the representations of the body in contemporary art with the different scales of matter and space, from elementary particles to cosmic rays. This project, currently presented at macLYON, allows for the dissemination of scientific concepts in society through an approach that invokes aesthetic experience as an integral part of pedagogy. Alongside the exhibition, a conference entitled “What are we made of? The body, a portal to physics” will be given on Thursday 16 May 2023 at 2.30 pm as part of the Open University of Lyon, followed by a guided tour of the exhibition.
