Right Here, Right Now! Climate Change in Oceania

  • Bibliothèque Bernheim (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Le changement climatique est invisible à l’œil nu, c’est pourquoi nous ne réalisons pas toujours qu’il nous concerne. Nous entendons parler des glaces de l’Arctique qui fondent, des îles Kiribati qui disparaissent sous les eaux. Tout cela nous parait bien lointain.  

C'est pourquoi j'ai souhaité organiser une exposition photographique pour montrer au grand public que notre environnement direct est touché. Il ne s’agit pas de pays éloigné mais bien de là où nous vivons chaque jour, là où nos enfants grandissent et où nous espérons demeurer encore longtemps. Des textes explicatifs accompagnent les photographies afin d’expliquer les phénomènes naturels qui touchent cette région et comment chacun peut agir pour protéger cette belle nature.     

J'ai choisi d'exposer à la bibliothèque Bernheim pour toucher le plus grand nombre de personnes, en particulier les jeunes.

J'espère ainsi leur faire prendre conscience de ce qui se déroule autour d'eux et leur faire réaliser qu'ils peuvent avoir un impact en modifiant certaines de leurs habitudes.


Climate change is invisible to the naked eye, that is why we do not always realize that it affects us. We hear about the melting ice in  the Arctic and about Kiribati islands disappearing under water. All this seems very far from us. That's why I wanted to organize a photographic exhibition to show the public that our direct environment is affected. This is no a distant country but where we live every day, where our children grow and where we hope to stay for a long time. Explanatory texts accompany the photographs to explain natural phenomena that affect the region and how everyone can act to protect this beautiful nature. I chose to expose to the Bernheim library to reach the greatest number of people, especially young people. I hope to make them aware of what is happening around them and make them realize that they can have an impact by changing some of their habits.

Blackston, au coeur du Vanuatu
to Apr 9

Blackston, au coeur du Vanuatu

Located in the middle of the South Pacific, Vanuatu was shaped by Nature. With its lush jungles, volcanoes and raging ocean, Vanuatu is a fascinating archipelago.

Ni-Vanuatu, despite living in difficult natural conditions managed to adapt to their environment. They face increasingly powerful cyclones and increasingly frequent volcanic eruptions, droughts or earthquakes.
To survive, they learned to live in the midst of an unpredictable and dangerous Nature but which they revere.
This distant land, where the four elements rub shoulders, is home to authentic cultures.

Alix Willemez and Arnaud Elissalde, two passionate photographers, take you through 24 photographs in this sacred land of Oceania.They were able to experience and photograph the rare atmosphere of this archipelago. It will remain forever in their memories.

Their various journeys in the heart of Vanuatu are each truly humbling.

Blackston, meaning "volcanic stone" in Bislama, invites you to reflect on the place of Man facing the force of Nature.
