Group Exhibition:
I knock on your skin





Photography by Dominique Croshaw.

"Tragedy is in fact a small region of comedy space, which is twisted all the way through. Right now, ecological awareness presents itself as tragedy. But sooner or later, we will start to smile, which is maybe how we get to cry for real." – Timothy Morton, All Art is Ecological

What is understood today as an ecology, or better, ecologies? How can they be defined; how do they help us move past disciplinary boundaries; and how do we re-negotiate interspecies coexistence accordingly? How may thinking ecologically allow us to navigate through crises?

Exploring new contact points through a variety of mediums, I knock on your skin maps relations between organisms and their respective environments from positions of interconnectedness, interrelations, and interactions. Ranging from critical to pondering references to the current socio-political shifts, the show postures its narrative threads alongside manifold layers of shared exchanges on the subject of ecology. I knock on your skin considers new ways of re-establishing our relation to crisis that might, perhaps, be playful, curious, and exploratory.

The artists include Conor Ackhurst, Gillies Adamson Semple, Ilona Balaga, Anthony Dickenson, Líadáin Éire, Maisie Maris, Guillermo Martinez de Velasco, Louis Blue Newby & Laila Majid, Giorgio van Meerwijk, and Camille Yvert. Performance by Rosie Broadhead, Kaivalya Brewerton & Chibuzor Adiele.
