Though it’s dark, still I sing, Works from the 34th Bienal de São Paulo marks the first exhibition of this Bienal hosted in Europe and in France. Shown at Les Forges in LUMA Arles, the selection of artworks reflects on questions of perception, transformation and how different realities can coexist. These are presented through a plurality of media, including installations, sound experiments, paintings, videos, photographs and letters.
