59th Venezia Arte Biennale 

Ongoing performative action hinged on embodiments of collective relations as seen in biology and botany, as well as those negotiated in more abstract interactions - between musical tones, humans and technology, rocks and waves, plants and animals, and more. Taking inspiration from symbolic living arrangements and other forms of reciprocal action, performers combine and recombine a set of elements - open to future additions - into a larger, reconfigurable structures. Reminiscent a Surrealist "exquisite corpse" game, through the body, the natural merges with that of the fantastic.
