IN THE WATERFALL I CAN BE A SEED
As part of the public program of < Arte Abierto > and the activities of the NO SOUND OF WATER exhibition, we invite the public to revisit the Troika exhibition together with the biologist and disseminator of the climate crisis, SOFÍA PROBERT; from a new narrative that seeks to reflect on how we dialogue with the complexity that inhabiting this present entails.
In the Waterfall I can be a Seed is a journey accompanied by Sofía Probert that seeks to intersperse the content of the exhibition No Sound of Water with its symbolic, biological level and with its intimate and sensitive scope, a scope that we discover as we are inside the installation.
It is an introspective visit to delve into the different concepts that the exhibition addresses; such as the idea of the anthropocene, the notion of the inhospitable, synthetic biology, fictitious ecosystems, the power to imagine futures or the possibility of the existence of non-organic intelligences. Some elements that compose the installation will also be explored; such as salt, white-toned environment or sound.
From a collective dynamic outdoors and next to the trees of < Arte Abierto >, the participants will be able to close the process of their visit by sharing their experience in order to create a collective map of emotions.
In the Waterfall I can be a Seed is an invitation to (re)think the future of life based on one’s own experiences.
Sofía Probert (1999) She is currently studying Biology at the Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana UAM, Xochimilco. Her interest in biology has led her to develop, from different artistic disciplines, a constant dialogue between organic life and aesthetics, combining digital and analog processes. Her work proposes to rethink our relationship with the natural world from a critical reflection on the anthropocentric view of biodiversity, living beings and nature. Probert explores the ways in which organic life expresses itself aesthetically and develops a constant political discourse around socio-environmental problems such as the climate crisis and the struggle for women’s liberation.
