Opening two new exhibitions at RADIUS | RADICAL SYMBIOSIS: THE SOCIAL LIFE OF MICROBES and SISSEL MARIE TONN: THE PORTAL
RADIUS presents two exhibitions simultaneously from September 2 to November 19. As part of the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Year—the Delft cloth merchant Antoni van Leeuwenhoek became renowned with his microscopes and is regarded as the founder of microbiology—we present the group exhibition RADICAL SYMBIOSIS: THE SOCIAL LIFE OF MICROBES, curated by guest curators Àngels Miralda Tena and Mateo Chacón Pino. The exhibition takes the form of a petri dish, in which ten artists experiment with and present work on the basis of bacterial and microbial worlds, as an endless conversation between people and the living environment.
In the exhibition THE PORTAL, Sissel Marie Tonn expands on her artistic research on the bog, once an awe-inspiring site of contact with spirits, ancestors and gods, now a threatened ecosystem that is key to counteract ecological decline. Conceived as a sensorial exploration of the bog, the audience encounters three bog bodies, who collectively hum, murmur and converse with each other about their transcendental experience of becoming-with the bog.
