those that slip among molecules (2021)
The installation those that slip among molecules uses a description of a specific location deriving from Greek mythology in combination with fictional entities occupying the actual place of the installation.
The asphodel meadows, known from Homer‘s Odyssey, describe a place in the underworld, where ordinary or indifferent souls who did not commit any significant crimes, but who also did not achieve any greatness, dwell. The character of this imaginary landscape is intertwined with an assemblage of field recordings, bridging artificial and “natural” environments and thereby challenging the romanticized image of the natural world while bringing queer-ecologies to the fore.
The visitor is invited to linger, move and change the environment with their steps.
