Exhibition View AIA Space, 2023, with Ipseria, Isabell Bullerschen, Pedro Wirz, Untitled (Nests)/ “Um Peso, Uma Medida”.
The exhibition A City Beyond maps out a future of coexistence between humans, non-humans, and material processes by exploring the value of collaboration and mixture as essential tools for mutual survival in the face of climate change. With more than half of the world’s population living in urban environments, the city of tomorrow demands new forms of communication able to inspire empathy as a radical tool for fostering care.
The exhibition’s landscapes are a combination of real and fictional narratives that intersect and cross-fertilize through transdisciplinary exchange. The metamorphic processes undergone by the works, their viewers, and their productions are understood as part of circular processes that blend biological, technological, and social elements to explore new ways of co-inhabiting common spaces.
The exhibition marks the beginning of the year-long Co-habitations project, which explores how human and non-human species will want to live together in a hundred years’ time.
