FIFTY PERCENT HUMAN – Sonja Bäumel
By Sonja Bäumel
I.s.m Birgit Nemec, Cocky Eek, Hauke Smidt
Orangerie, 8 – 16 October 2016
Fifty Percent Human creates an in-between space, addressing uncertainties, ambiguities and imagination linked to the microbial paradigm shift both on an aesthetic and on an epistemological level. The project’s installation presents a damp environment, filled thick with enlarged transparent and liquid membrane-bound microbial cells, collectively swimming, lying or floating – an intersecting multi-species landscape to explore. Is it possible that we may sense a language to encounter with non-verbal organisms through touch? To experience and thus better understand inter-organismic communication means taking care of the microcosm and thus ultimately means taking care of ourselves.
Exhibition opening hours:
