The Dodo went extinct in the 17th century. It was not declared extinct until the 19th century when Georges Cuvier established extinction as a fact, during a time when extinction was considered by many of Cuvier’s contemporaries to be merely controversial speculation.

Lives for grass by Mathilde Roussel
Mathilde Roussel is a French artist based in. Her artwork explores the questions around human being in what it is the most imperceptible. It is linked to a search to reveal through metaphor, our inner image. She wants to find the shape, the color, the dimension of our mental landscape. Her autonomous preparatory drawings allow her to formally think her sculptures which become drawings in space. Through her explorations, she strives to question time considering both human and vegetal time. Her work becomes a mapping of our body, an anatomy of time and space that we occupy by our fragile presence in the world., ,

"Sassolino’s work focuses on industrial processes and materials. His objects and installations explore mechanical behaviors, materials and physical properties of force. Each work takes careful planning and research and results in constructions that are stunning both in terms of their sheer physicality (material density, mechanical precision) and the forces (gravity, pressure, friction) which are applied by or to the object."
