THE AGENCY presents N U R T U R Æ L
From June 9, 2022, THE AGENCY will present the exhibition at Lothringer 13 Halle
N U R T U R Æ L with works by Kanako Azuma, Sarah Doerfel, Nile Koetting and THE AGENCY.
In N U R T U R Æ L the sun is omnipresent. Forests and seas of the earth have silted up, while known and unknown beings try to ensure their survival collaboratively: potential ecosystems of living objects, no longer human people and animal species that practice or unlearn a future existence.
N U R T U R Æ L looks into a not too distant future in which the precariousness of survival for different life forms is once again felt. How could a poetics of relationships with the earth be rehearsed, beyond a centering on the human or the living?
Nile Koetting's works, which deal with states of emergency and evacuations, encounter the often violent and yet sometimes healing cooperation between humans and other living beings in Sarah Doerfel's works. While Kanako Azuma deals with the slow erosion of the continents by water in her video work, THE AGENCY imagines possible life on earth after the human species disappeared.
Like the desert itself, N U R T U R Æ L has hot and cold phases: the exhibition opens on June 9th, 2022 with a cold phase.
From June 23rd, THE AGENCY will open the hot phase of N U R T U R Æ L with their performance SOLASTALGIA.
The discourse series SAND STORIES takes place beforehand: The series is dedicated to current theories about the climate crisis and climate justice and discusses with guests such as Elizabeth A. Povinelli, Kiran Pereira and Caspar Heinemann.
