opening: 01.07.2022, 7 pm

 

The artists Yoav Admoni, Chris Bierl, the fermentier.bar, Saša Spačal and Ingo Vetter & Annette Weisser negotiate the relationships between naturalness and artificiality with their aesthetic concepts. In the intertwining of the living and the artificial, an ecology of ideas emerges with new perspectives.    

 

Yoav Admoni examines how notions of nature have entered patterns of thought and everyday life and confronts us with the natural as a place of longing.  

Chris Bierl embeds organic matter into his art. The artwork creates a walk-in habitat in which visitors interact with living orchids and mantids.   

The fermentier.bar portrays, celebrates and experiments with microorganisms in the context of fermentation. The mediation of this cultural technique creates experiential, sensory-aesthetic experiences in the tension between chaos and control. 

The work "Mycomythologies" by Saša Spačal opens a microscopic view of a living-growing mushroom landscape mixed with the artist's microbiome (blood, sweat, tears), gaining its form in the interrelations. 

Tree of Heaven Woodshop (Ingo Vetter & Annette Weisser) place the technique of re- or upcycling in the context of globalized ecosystems and their associated problems. They work exclusively with the wood of the tree of heaven, which has adapted perfectly to hostile urban landscapes as a colonizer of wasteland and whose wood is considered inferior. The Kassel repair series combines existing design classics with tree elements to create eight hybrid chairs.
