The cross-generational group show Sun Rise | Sun Set brings together contemporary, as well as 19th and 20th century artists to form a multi-layered response to the fast unfolding eco-catastrophe. The exhibition aims to reconfigure our relationship to the Earth and all its inhabitants, by nourishing the ever-changing interconnections between humans, animals, plants, inanimate objects, technologies and non-beings. The exhibited works guide us through surreal landscapes, bio-technical hybrids,
futuristic scenarios and speculative concepts and create an other-worldly experience that counters the current dark season of
restriction, uncertainty, and loss.
At a moment, in which the planet’s habitability is becoming increasingly compromised due to human activity, the exhibition
addresses the collective necessity to redefine our role as part of a whole and to find new ways of living in the world by
rethinking the boundaries of our species and welcoming transformation and hybridity in all forms. By highlighting circular
system and entangled, multispecies perspectives Sun Rise | Sun Set encourages alternative attitudes that aim for the procreation and regeneration of the Earth to come.
