The artists Yoav Admoni, Chris Bierl, die fermentier.bar, With their aesthetic concepts, Saša Spačal and Annette Weisser negotiate the relationship between naturalness and artificiality. The intertwining of the living and the artificial creates an ecology of ideas with new perspectives.

 

Yoav Admoni investigates, how ideas of nature have entered thought patterns and everyday life and confronts us with the natural as a social place of longing.

Chris Bierl embeds organic matter in his art. The work of art creates a walk-in living space, in which visitors with living orchids- (and) Mantids interact.

The fermentier.bar portrays, celebrates and experiments with microorganisms in the context of fermentation. The mediation of this cultural technique creates something that can be experienced, sensual-aesthetic experiences in the field of tension between chaos and control.

The work "Mycomythologies" by Saša Spačal opens up a microscopic view of a living, growing mushroom landscape, mixed with the artist's microbiome (Blood, Sweat, Tears) and gains its form in the interrelationships.

Ingo Vetter & Annette Weisser moves the technique of the Re- respectively. Upcycling in the context of globalized ecosystems and their associated problems. They work exclusively with the wood of the tree of heaven, who, as a fallow settler, has adapted perfectly to hostile urban landscapes and whose wood is considered inferior. The series “Kassel repair” combines existing design classics with tree of heaven elements into eight hybrid chairs.
