Between the rational + the potential: Into pore spaces: An expansive archive about Biosphere 2 at Fluent, Jun 17 – Jun 30

, 16 June 2017

The Into pore spaces: An expansive archive about Biosphere 2 group exhibition is on at Santander’s Fluent gallery, opening June 17 and running to June 30.

The show weaves together a “fragmented archival display” including works by Basel Abbas & Ruanne Abou-Rahme, Claire Pentecost, Tim Ivison & Julia Tcharfas and Sarah Abu Abdallah. The project begins with archival material from a scientific research facility in the Arizona desert relating to water cycles or agricultural biomes. The invited artists have then been asked to sample from “online videos, scientific drawings and diagrams” to explore the boundary between “the rational and the potential.”

Fluent is a non-profit organization that hosts projects “based on hybrid forms of production, exhibition, publication, debate and exchange.”
