Format: screening
Art & Science Node
“The Routes to Roots Networks and Beyond” meetings provide a discussion about the transdisciplinary, artistic and scientific project “Rhizosphere: The Big Network of Small Worlds“. We will talk about the project’s origins, elements and ongoing development, that include both scientific and artistic research & exploration, while presenting a selection of the multimedia artistic projects inspired by or referring to the life-abundant, plant root zone. We are looking into the root systems and the communication of the rhizosphere actors in order to explore new ways towards democratization of resources, information and knowledge. Several years of constantly growing cooperation between scientists and artists from various institutions carries a huge creative and educational potential. The Rhizosphere network creates new communication bridges, teaching us how to use the “wisdom of the roots” in order to improve the quality of our life, wisely walk towards the world we want to live in and become, who we want to be. I 12.02.2021 @ 18:00 – During the second meeting – “Tuning in to Nature” – a conversation about interspecies bonds, the complexity of today’s world and the vision of the future in the context of communication and the disturbed connection between man and nature, will form an introduction to the screening of two artworks – “Broken Links” – a recording of a performance by Maria Subczyńska and “Marsquakes” – video by Jadwiga Subczyńska.
