taking back my goodbye. Thoughts on the island’s ecological clockwork
This text was written in the process of the exhibition “taking back my goodbye” on the spring residency at Ventnor Botanic Garden on the Isle of Wight, UK, 2022.
The L13 READER NR 3 is published as part of the project N U R T U R Æ L. With N U R T U R Æ L, the performance group THE AGENCY develops a speculative scenario for a possible post-human world for the Lothringer 13 Halle, in which collaborative survival, mutual awareness and care for one another form the prerequisite for a possible post-human way of being together. The exhibition N U R T U R Æ L presents works by Kanako Azuma, Sarah Doerfel, Nile Koetting and THE AGENCY. With the performative installation SOLASTALGIA, THE AGENCY will open a space of farewell to the centrality of man in an ecosystem destroyed by him from 23 June - 3 July 2022.
In the idea of accompanying publishing, texts and visual material will successively be made accessible that are related to the themes and questions of the project and open up further spaces of thought. The contributions will be made available both online and in print on site and can be individually compiled by visitors.
