About

XVII. The Age of Nymphs explores human and insect affects and the archaeology of trauma. The exhibition looks at cycles of history and the possibility of regaining time through repetition and doubling. Confronting the stagnation of our time, the artists consider posthuman gestures and insect behaviour as a way of subverting human politics.

XVII refers to the year of the Russian Revolution and to cicadas which live underground for 17 years before reemerging and shortly after completing their life cycle. The title also relates to the seventeenth year in power of Russia’s present ruler.
