Summary :
The work the navel of the world? constitutes the testimony of the exhibition presented at the Toulouse museum from June 30, 2018 to June 30, 2019. From the Polynesian adventure to the present day, Easter Island and its inhabitants have gone through an eventful history and very commented on but little known in reality. How has extreme insularity shaped this unique territory and those who live there? Why is this island, sometimes called the navel of the world, so emblematic of the complex relationships between humans and their environment? The exhibition offers a new perspective, nourished by the testimonies of the inhabitants themselves and by the latest advances in science on the natural and cultural history of RapaNui. This title presents the exhibition by following its common thread and recounts some strong moments associated with the realization of this exhibition. A few major selected museographic moments feature various actors, from craftsmen to high-tech technicians, from illustrators to taxidermists ... We can thus go behind the scenes of the museography: for example the reconstruction of the cabin of the Flore as that the future Pierre Loti designed it in 1872, rich in objects from the island, the reproduction of monumental statues (the moai), or even the interviews carried out recently with the Easter Islanders by the ethno-archaeologist Hélène Guiot ... strong points The current and unpublished scientific synthesis on the natural and cultural history of Easter Island. The partnership with various trades, artisanal or very innovative linked to digital. Reports on the preparations for the exhibition The presence of testimonies from current inhabitants.
