Temporary interventions at Tiergarten, Berlin 2020
Backlit display cases containing living microorganisms collected from the site, such as the soil, the plants, the water, and the air, together with organisms collected from the artist's body growing and developing for different periods.
Against the backdrop of a global pandemic in which social contact became restricted, the series Agglomerations proposes a reconnection with nature: not only with what is visible to us but also with all beings present in it, including the non-human creatures, such as fungi, mold, and bacteria, that are vital not only for us but also for the planet. The interventions serve as a kind of magnifying lens revealing the invisible ecosystem of the site, forming a hybrid with the ecosystem of the body. A reminder that we, too, are a part of nature, and through contemplation and self-awareness, we can begin to rethink our roles and position on this planet.
