Fragile Times

Climate change, environmental pollution and mass extinction are just some of the issues causing us anxiety. But even with the realisation that human activity is destroying the very basis of life on our planet, very few people are making lasting changes to their behaviour. 

Address
Galerie im Körnerpark

Schierker Straße 8 12051  Berlin

 
This exhibition addresses the fragile relationship between nature and humanity from a variety of perspectives and seeks ways to re-explore it. How can art create a space in which we defi ne our relationship with the environment in a new way? Can art and poetry contribute to a healing process that improves interactions between all organisms?
 
Water as the possible origin of life, the paradox of fossil fuels that store solar energy, and the garbage in our oceans that could become a starting point for a giant archive of humanity are some of the subjects the artists engage with.

Through their work, they attempt to counter the widespread sense of helplessness using unusual models of thought and playful experiments. They use contextual shifts to open up new perspectives on accepted facts, trace forgotten knowledge of natural forces, delve into old myths, rituals, and symbols, and invent new ritualistic activities to create meaningful relationships with the environment.
 
A performance project by Viviana Druga and Dafna Maimon takes place parallel to the Exhibition on 7 and 8 August at 6 pm.
 
Curated by Dorothee Bienert and Kati Kivinen
