The artists explores the mutual relationships and connections between the element of water and the human body. Apéro will be served in collaboration with Edition VFO from 18:00 to 20:00.

Her most recent project, titled "Liquid Connections," unfolds across multiple exhibitions and encompasses the production of a film, as well as a spatial installation and a live performance. The project's inception lies in a dense, poetic text collage sourced from scientific literature, speculative fiction, and pop culture references. Within this collage, the artist explores the interconnectedness between water and the human body, delving into questions of origin and the existential threat posed by climate change.

In her text, the rising sea levels due to global warming are envisioned as a speculative return to water, contemplating the potential for human transformation into a "multispecies" entity better equipped to face future challenges.

Lena Maria Thüring lives and works in Zurich and Basel. Thüring completed her studies in photography in 2007 and earned a Master of Arts in Fine Arts from the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) in 2014. From 2014 to 2017, she served as a jury member of the Audiovision and Multimedia expert committee, BS/BL, Basel.
