NATURALLY, WILD FUTURES, M Museum Pavilion at Floriade Expo, Almere, NL, 2022
BugSim (Pheromone Spa), 2022 premiered at Floriade Expo in The Art Pavilion Flevoland in the Netherlands on April 14, 2022, as part of NATURALLY, WILD FUTURES curated by Ward Janssen. The exhibition proposes future concepts of nature in a technology induced state of flux, and the presentation of nature as a subject in exhibition formats ranging from the archaic to the immersive. The exhibition presents all newly commissioned artworks by artists defying disciplinary boundaries in art, design, scenography, theatre and technological experimentation.
In BugSim, a precious slice of microscopic life expands to a busy Colony of Ants and progressively to an entire forest of tiny flowering plants, branching and blooming in every direction, whilst carefully monitored by a mysterious figure. Prepare to be lured into a miniature world of resilience and entropy and contemplate on the paradox of environmental repair.
Participating Artists: Heleen Blanken, Maison the Faux, Theo Triantafyllidis, Yaloo, Max de Waard
