Topography of Vulnerabilities #2

Two Plants, a Nagra and an Oscillator having a conversation on how do we continue to function and exist in conditions that are contributing to our extinction.

Expanding on the artists’ ongoing research which started with “Bird Bird, Touch Touch, Sing Sing«” (2019) on inter-dependency, vulnerability, closeness, disorientation, and trust, they are questioning the effects that the current and post-pandemic climate has on these themes, where the policing of intimacies has become unquestionable and normalised.

At Ignition Cycle and FOMO, the duo presents the latest iteration of “Topography of Vulnerabilities #2” which was first presented at the daadgalerie in July 2020. This time, the work evolves into an installation with sound, light and plant elements using generative electronic sounds, an unstable horizontal tape loop and two plants installed into a lightless subterranean environment – a continuation of the duo’s attempts at impossibilities -, attempting to exist in an environment where conditions are detrimental to existence.
