Eloïse Bonneviot is presenting a solo exhibition Thinking like a Mountain at London’s Green Ray, opening January 29 and running to February 20.
Described as a “data pool” that blurs the line between the ‘artificial’ and the ‘natural’, the show explores this lack of said disinction through “different levels of intimacy and interaction with an artwork”.
The artist –also behind The Meditative Relaxation Cycle group exhibition at Arcadia Missa in 2014, and the ongoing The Mycological Twistat Jupiter Woods –has gathered databases of information from mountain accidents to create an artificial nature in a video game environment.
Drawing on the Romantic notion of the mountain, as an artificial rendering of a natural entity, Bonneviot looks at the human as intruder into nature and its will to “colonize and dominate until nature is not nature anymore.”
