The No natural disaster group exhibition is on at Berlin’s HORSEANDPONY, opening November 27 and running to December 18.
Featuring Viktor Timofeev, Diana Artus, Caitlin Berrigan, Tamen Perez, Armita Raafat, and Clémence de La Tour du Pin, there is little information on the nature of the show, aside from a text excerpted from Berrigan’s experimental book Treatise on Imaginary Explosions, vol. 1 (Broken Dimache Press, forthcoming 2017).
Covering similar themes of power, politics and capitalism that inform her performance, video, sculpture, and textual practice, the piece describes a post-apocalyptic landscape, not dissimilar to the salinity-blighted ecological disaster area, once an aspiring resort town, of California’s Salton Sea:
“Postcards of a resort oasis show blue water,
bronzed bodies, white boats and yellow blossomed date palms.
Now full of metal and oxygen-eating microbes,
the sea’s fish thrown in for sport are suffocating”
