17 copies of a rock, 2021. Site-specific installations at Victoria park, Gleisdreieck park and Teufelsberg forest, Berlin.
17 copies of a rock collected in Gleisdreieck Park,
Berlin, were made out of the different organic waste
of the area. They were then placed in different
arrangements showing the process of degradation
of the rock. The different copies were organized
attending to their decomposition state, from freshest to eldest.
During the making process, the artists tried to incorporate non-dualist approaches that challenge the ontological divide between
nature and culture, human and nonhuman; a divide argued to
ground the faith in human exceptionalism. With this aim, they have
been working together with air, water, mold, temperature, mycelium, and the different organic waste to create the pieces, letting go
of the impulse of controlling the results and adopting the role of
facilitators or teammates. The shapes of the pieces are also trying
to break this human-nature division by being difficult to classify as
human-made or nature-made
