THROUGH ooZE and SLIME...
Being with, becoming with, thinking with;
bacteria, fungi and algae
> SOLO EXHIBITION Jan. 18th - 31st 2023, in Galerija Na Katu, Zagreb HR <
BACKGROUND: We share the same story. We go back to the same beginning. We are entangled with those we long kept in the dark or just dismissed as scum or germs.
Bacteria, fungi and algae are very much part of our Umwelt, very much involved in our world-making, very much part of our bodies. Today, all-together, we inhabit a damaged planet.
THROUGH OOZE and SLIME... not only invites us to re-connect to where we came from, the works invite us to sense beyond ourselves, to sense the world from a fungi, bacteria or algae point of view. Our species-specific-sensing is limited... Answers to urgent questions might be held in worlds beyond. Reactive wearables, capsules & devices were created for interspecies communication. They assemble in a multi-sensory, interactive installation, that is very much alive.
What is it like to be a mushroom?
Or to be a bacterium in our nostrils or gut?
