My work will be part of the event Multinatural Histories, at the Harvard Museum of Natural History on October 12th. 2013. The exhibition is organized in part by the nonhuman initiative at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and supported by the Harvard Office for the Arts.

"Featuring local and international artists, the departure point for the exhibition the increasing deployment of the idea of the multinatural to circumvent the realist/relativist impasses generated at the end of the 20th century and the declaration on many fronts to "an end of nature". The term multinatural is widely understood to originate with Eduardo Viveiros de Castro and his description of animistic ontologies of indigenous populations in the Amazon rain forest. Within such a multinatural ontology, the material world shares a universal culture of life and vitality, conditioned by a peculiar, multiple, set of physiological attributes. In de Castro's words, employing the notion of perspective, so fundamental to a modern, rationalist organization of space, "a perspective is not a representation because representations are a property of the mind or spirit, whereas the point of view is located in the body". In other words, a point of view and the peculiar corporal circumstances that enable it,  creates a subject, not an object."

I am included in the exhibition Vegetal Passion @ the Crédac website. About the show:

"The online exhibition Vegetal Passion sees the exhibition space as the natural milieu of works of art. The artist and curator duo It's Our Playground (Camille Le Houezec & Jocelyn Villemont) has imagined this 5th installment of Royal Garden as an ambiguous jungle in which visitors will find artists' pieces, archival photographs and images gleaned from the internet, all shown side by side without any obvious hierarchy. (...)"

It is time to re-evaluate the boundaries of the human organism. The human body is mediation, not as a one way movement from the environment to the subject, but by diverging processes in constant circulation. Biological streams of food, bacteria, virus and parasites produce physical conditions, creating possibilities and restrictions for the development and functionality of bodies.

The process of becoming human is always a becoming-with, where relating precedes identity. Instead of a uniform structure, the human is an aggregation of different scales, different organisms. These levels include multiple cognitive layers, turning the human into an ecology, a super-organism.  I am working towards the possibility of self-infection. This is a strategy of generously opening oneself towards the other, accepting it as a violent gift. From this opening unexpected, non-intentional transformations might occur.
