Installation and Performance

 

Velence-tavi Symposion XII, Velence, Hungary, 2018

 

In collaboration with Eva Freund

 

Revealing the intemperate wilderness in a human scale, this shelter built from local materials (mud, branches, nettle) is able to approach and connect to the untamed and stingy environment and at the same time accept and internalize the protective and healing qualities of wilderness. 

 

This mechanism also applies to our own nature and serves as an analogy in understanding the mind as an ecosystem.

 

During the opening of the Festival, the audience could  experience and literally taste the qualities explored in the work: visitors were invited to have a sip from the nettle tea cultivated by space-taming practices.
