The French artist Boris Raux will explain how our nose operates from the nostrils to the brain.
He will shortly present how odours influence our behaviour and our society.

About Boris Raux
From his scientific background the artist Boris Raux kept an intense drive for research. During the past fifteen years, he produces what he calls, The Olfactory Chronicles. He tries endlessly to grasp a better understanding of our world and of our society. This task is obviously impossible so he faces the situation with humour and accepts to lose everything into volatile scents.
His practice evolves fro m four areas of investigation, the common goods, the common places, the uncommon bodies and the common myths to create, nowadays, performative sculptures that might be described as factories of common olfactory experiences.
