St John on Bethnal Green hosts 'Wandering', a new exhibition by Gloria Sulli

About

It is a site-specific sculptural installation project that takes its inspiration from plankton. Plankton, from the Greek πλαγκτόν, means ‘wanderer’. Unable to actively impact its own movement, is transported passively by the currents and waves. Plankton is the blue lung of the Earth, as it produces 50% of the oxygen on the planet through photosynthesis.

The myriad of different organisms from which it is composed are among the most ancient from an evolutionary standpoint since life began in our oceans. These species differ significantly and are divided into prey and predators, parasites and guests, couples that live in harmony and form a true community. The tiny creatures of the sea are more numerous than the stars in the universe and are the foundation of the earth’s food chains. These incredible features make plankton a strong inspiration for Gloria Sulli’s spiritual quest. In studying these organisms, she discovered brilliant metaphors on how humans live and reference points that allow us to evolve spiritually.

Wandering: learning to abandon tensions, without the desire to intervene, without chasing, allowing the events to how, learning to see the world, knowing that everything we see and understand is altered through our unique experience and our limited, changing emotionality.

This event is listed within Whitechapel First Thursdays.
