Abstract (English)

''This exhibition explores the means by which knowledge of the elemental forces and geopolitical processes impacting upon us in the 21st century can be generated in the presence and absence of evidence. Combining raw minerals and high-tech elements, each work in the exhibition makes visible the forces of composition and decomposition that are rumbling just below or flowing across the surface of the Earth. Whether the circulation of the winds and seawaters, or the cycling of substances through the spheres – oxygen, carbon, water, and nitrogen – or the emergence and decay of life, what is revealed is that matter matters. Matter and matters intertwine.'' --
