Too Dumb To Fail, 2018


The immersive - Too Dumb To Fail - exhibition let’s you dive straight into Hoël Duret’s latest scenario.

My name is Harvey. I’m 34 years old and I’m a journalist.
On December the 11th, I boarded the MS Lagoon Princess ocean liner for an eight day cruise on the Caribbean sea. I was sent by H. Magazine to come up with a piece of news. Needless to say it was a royal pain in the ass. Believe you me, I wouldn’t have been anywhere near that boat if it hadn’t been for Nancy from the office nagging me with her simpering “ only your Neo-Gonzo style can really capture what happens on board ”. Long story short, the glossy program of the Southern Caribbean Retro 5★ cruise was simple enough : a mash up of idyllic beaches for sick and ugly tourists, disgusting tax-havens and crappy memories.
