Panorama of 110 works

The exhibition will be up until March 10, 2019

“Dioramas, habitats and simulated environments surface throughout this show, with biospheres, specimens, and cosmologies converging to depict at once a fragile world in disarray and the complexity of coexistence and worldmaking. For example, artist and journalist Ingo Günther's Worldprocessor (1988–ongoing), is an atlas of illuminated globes that map data across coloured spheres such as health statistics, birth rates, military expenditure, and drug routes. This constellation of luminous globes forecasts and extrapolates data onto spherical readymades, strung up in a darkened room like floating orbs.

“Strongly visual, Worldprocessor is conceptual, scientific, and analytical, alluding to structures formed between humans and nature, which is the backbone of the exhibition. The curatorial statement articulates an intention to 'explore, illustrate and investigate the different modes of connectivity and reciprocal dependency that keep a system alive'.”
