An exhibition about botanical and organic forms and the ways in which we organise knowledge.


The fascination with anthropomorphising natural forms combines with the idea that volcanic ground is one of the most fertile environments for plant growth as well as for the human imagination. The birthplace of Titans, the draw of the originary deserted volcanic island that combines creation with proximity to disaster. The exhibition places artistic making in relation to the fascination with natural objects and beings that capture the imagination, creating narratives, myths, and occult practices from these mysterious formations. The processes of making from ceramic or iron returns to the heart of the volcano, emitting not only formless streams of lava, but streams of the imagination and a desire to mould this into something human. The basis is an ecology similar to Laruelle’s proposition of man-animal-plant, but also mineral. The volcanic fires mirror a sky full of constellations, which also become mythic forms. Stories unfold that emerge from the same fascination as that which leads to science. In botany, geology, and archeology, that which is uncovered is presented and explained in forms to fit our understanding.
