Interview by Dawn Sanders

http://www.antennae.org.uk/

Nature is a concept we have shaped over millennia of images, texts, compositions, constructions, garments, and performances. The trees, the rocks, the air, and the water simply are. They don’t care about us, our desires, spirituality, pasts, and even futures. Nature is in our heads. It is a concept inescapably defined by our histories, our desires, our spirituality, our pasts, and even our futures. It is therefore not a surprise that encountering plants always entails a process of negotiation between one’s own cultural background, race, gender, beliefs, and values. Our coming to terms with the vegetal world is always inescapably mediated by tools or contexts, even when we claim to be objective.

Museum Fridericianum, Kassel
September 2020 /postponed 2021

Ecological problems are developing with increasing dynamics and relevance: climate change, pol-lutant emissions, loss of land and the dramatic extinction of species make profound transfor-mation processes in all areas of society inevitable. Accordingly, ecological issues are increasingly adressed in mass media discourses, in business, politics, education and art. What can be done in the respective areas? What role do individual and collective actors play?
Following on from concepts of participative art, which the Kasseler Kunstverein recently focused on with “wetransform” (February – March 2019), the project “Artificial Ecologies” explores pos-sibilities for art to act. Art becomes a habitat of the ecological, a creative space of artistic, social and ecological processes.

 The National Library of Letland / Riga  8.10. – 20. 11. 2020

Curators Yvonne Volkart, Rasa Smite, Raitis Smits.

ECODATA aim is to explore the ‘ecosystematic perspective’. More than just rising awareness that living organisms are highly interdependent on each other and their environments, this year’s festival edition aims to reveal a web of connections that interweaves biological, social and techno-scientific systems, living and digital data, artistic and scientific approaches.  ECODATA exhibition is the central axis of the festival, which forms the rest of the program, made in collaboration with Ecodata–Ecomedia–Ecoaesthetics” research group led by researcher and theorist Yvonne VOLKART, (Basel, Switzerland). The purpose of this exhibition is to bridge the gap between technological and ecological as well as to incorporate technological issues into ecological art. This year’s exhibition will feature twenty artworks by internationally acknowledged artists working in the field of media art, science and ecology.

Gare Saint Sauveur Lille

Curator: Lidewij Edelkoort &Philip Fimmano

 The past decade has seen a turning point in our relationship with materials, from design to manufacturing, with materials gradually reclaiming their central role in the creative process and beginning to dictate form rather than simply adapt to it. The exhibition explores the power of materials, which use the sense of touch to convey emotion and energy. It draws on the so-called ​“neo-materialist” movement, which reasserts the centuries-old beliefs that materials have their own force and exude an energy that people can genuinely feel.
