Station 13010 is an act of rebasing, a recoding of possibilities, via a different branch, of virtual memory, through the codes of ritual, icons and conduct. A post-dystopian speculation, whose point of origin is that of Null Island located in the Gulf of Guinea. An island that exists only in code, for the computational calculation of geographical positioning and orientation, the point of intersection between the meridian line and the equator, an unreal center, an everyday fiction.
Taking the form of a home temple informed by classical artistic and cultural practices within the region and their relation to community healing. A fictional proposition of possibilities, a techno-animist worlding of the entanglement between nature, the spiritual and technology, our geo-social relations, whilst rooted in their tension and realities of the Capitalo/Plantationo/Chthulu-cene.
The exhibition consists of three altars, each altar an imagining of a fictional deity that alludes to a method of organising, inspired by the work of Adrienne Maree Brown in Emergent Strategy and Donna Haraway. It takes a Shen-istic view of ‘minor’ beings and their entelechies.
Mycelium - Interconnectedness. Remediation. Detoxification.
Algae - Use similar principles to build at all scales.
Lichen - Collective Sustainability.
The exhibition serves as a fragment of a fractal, like an incantation, a spell to cast intent, to build upon. A play on symbiosis and syncretism, an opening for possession, by the histories, knowledges and objects of resistance.
