The Edge Effects – Active Earth group exhibition at Seoul’s Art Sonje Center opened November 7 and is running to December 3.
Part of Frontiers in Retreat (a five-year international collaboration taking place from 2013 to 2018 and exploring multidisciplinary approaches to ecology in art) and curated by Jenni Nurmenniemi, the show is #7 in a series of exhibitions under the umbrella Edge Effects, running June to December. It culminates in a Zooetics Symposium in February 2018 and the term ‘edge effect’ refers to contact zones in which “diversity is always richest in areas where different ecosystems meet.”
Organised in collaboration with HIAP (Helsinki International Artist Programme), the Active Earth installation taps into moments of subtlety and entanglement and brings together work that explores “ever-changing, knotty relations between all forms of matter,” featuring Elena Mazzi & Sara Tirelli, mirko nikolic, Nabb+Teeri, Tuomas A. Laitinen and Jaakko Pallasvuo.**
