The Artificial Nature Project

Part of the retrospective "The Artificial Nature Series"

In “The Artificial Nature Project”, Mette Ingvartsen stages perceptions and sensations of nature and proposes a new encounter between human and non-human. Materials fly through the air giving rise to a landscape that constantly transforms itself, rapidly altering our perception. A calm contemplative site may turn into an energetic chaos, a flood wave becomes a storm of confetti whirling through the air, an abstract sculpture turns into a swarm of animals. A vibrant landscape of dead things coming alive.
