This Entangled Land (still) by Annabel Howland

The exhibition space is open from 13:00 with work by Annabel Howland and Farah Rahman.

Artist Annabel Howland has been working with research into arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and plant-fungal interactions from Toby Kiers Lab at VU Amsterdam for more than a decade. Her film This Entangled Land is a visual and sonic tapestry of social, biological and cultural interactions. Its narratives weave their way along a logging road in Borneo, branch off into villages and languages, zoom in on fungal networks in the soil and zoom out to view their global impact. Annabel will also present new drawings in the exhibition space.

Malin Klein’s lecture will look at mycorrhizal fungi and their critical interactions with plants in the soil. She will talk about how scientists research fungal networks in the lab and in the field, showing some of the latest images from the Kiers and Kokkoris Labs (VU Amsterdam) and SPUN – Society for the Protection of Underground Networks. Malin is a PhD candidate in the Toby Kiers Lab at the Amsterdam Institute for Life and Environment (A-LIFE), Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam where she was previously a research technician.

The film This Entangled Land is supported by the AFK (Amsterdam Fund for the Arts).
