”Growing interconnectedness” is an exhibition that seeks for cultural interconncetion of body and mind to ecosystems, sourcing inspiration from soil, water and all the diversity they cotribute to. Eco-erotic metaphoras appear as ways to form empathies. The motifs source inspiration from hydrofeminist thought. "The painting research is also part of my personal struggle to work through the cultural oppresion of sexuality and nature that I have experienced in my life, growing up in a place were both are surpressed by religion and capitalist customs at the same time. Painting is a tool to pose questions and affirmations on the bodily relationship to ecosystems. Eco-erotic metaphoras included in the immersive installation aim to find new forms of coexistence building an empowered feminist voice in the times of climate catastrophe."
During the opening Kristīne Tukre will perform a herb brew instrument that has been built in collaboration with Mark Reid Bulatovič and Robert Prakapovich.
Welcome, and see you at Asbestos Art Space on 23rd of November at 18:00.
