Terra Nexus is a labyrinth of 17 interconnected artist worlds, questioning the role of The Human As Part of Ecology. An immersive exhibition designed with social distancing. Curated by Gabriella Sonabend.
Featuring 25 artists this immersive experience invites the audience into a multi-sensory labyrinthine of interconnected worlds, to unravel a story that brings together diverse insights into our relationship with our planet.
Starting with the fundamental idea that we need to shift away from a human-centric narrative in order to protect our planet for future generations, installations explore: the importance of soil; the movement of species; the threat of impending extinctions; ways to reconnect with nature; conflict arising from depleted resources; the future of cities and how human’s will live within them.
From the perspectives of insects and animals, through the eyes of scientists, artificial intelligence, plant life, ancient cultures and conflicting contemporary viewpoints; Terra Nexus is a wormhole of ideas.
Warping sensory experiences, excavating, weaving between co-existing timelines and suggesting alternative histories; this is the first of a series of immersive projects asking the viewer to raise their own questions about The Human As Part of Ecology and what that means today and for future generations.
