About the exhibition :
Seeking the Essence, by the awarded writer and artist Menena Cottin, is a multisensory and playful exhibition showcasing 18 of her conceptual illustrated fictional characters and philosophical books, displayed in interactive modules and digital formats.
The exhibition includes books like the award winning “The Black Book of Colors,” engaging participants on a journey around what it means to “see colors” when you’re blind. Each segment aims to simplify grand concepts of the human spirit, inviting participants to think and question, but within the context of simple texts and minimalist aesthetics.
