Plant grafting, selective breeding, and ornamental gardens are practices, sometimes very old, that attest to the fact that humans intervene on living organisms according to aesthetic criteria in order to create singular forms and colors. By comparing contemporary works in the field of bioart with the staging of plants and animals in traditional societies, this conference aims to reflect on the various ways of exhibiting living things.

Speaker: Perig Pitrou, research director at the CNRS, and member of the Laboratoire d'Anthropologie Sociale of the Collège de France where he leads the "Anthropologie de la Vie" team
