An artistic journey from the origins of the Universe to the first human civilizations
César Henao's works explore the notion of the origin of the Universe and black holes. This spatio-temporal thread leads the visitor to the beginning of Egyptian and African civilization. The exhibition unfolds through a sensory and immersive journey in several connected spaces, thanks to visual projections and artistic installations.
The Nartex art gallery also presents the works of artists César and Stéphanie Henao in dialogue with themes of archeology in Vaison-la-Romaine.

THE GALLERY OF SINGULARITY
THE BLACK PHARAOHS
In this imaginary space merges the vertiginous scrolling of the remains of civilizations that disappeared from Egypt to Sudan with the scenic abyss of a set of mirrors staged by César Henao. From Kerma to Doukki Gel, follow the captivating story of the Geneva archaeologist Charles Bonnet, discoverer of the black pharaohs.
THE PATRON GALLERY
Penetrating installation by César Henao associating contemporary dancers from the Rudra Ballet Béjart de Lausanne and the stained glass windows created by Kim En Joong for the cathedral of the upper town, offered in 2017 by the Swiss patron Léonard Gianadda.
The gallery of patrons invites the visitor to understand how Vaison became the Roman, thanks to the patronage of Maurice Burrus.
This sensory and immersive itinerary begins with the discovery of the gallery of the Singularity of the artist César Henao. His hypnotic works - the Infinitizations - question the primordial vibration of the Universe and the blossoming of life.
