The press release includes a narrative about coming across a sea of webs that ‘exp(anded)(loded)(lored)(osed)’:

“My nephew rubbed his hands clean on my felt vest, contently saying: ‘There we go — A skillful combination of the 20 types of amino acids with an endless potential for unprecedented versatility. Elastic, thin and tougher than steel’.”

In the run up to the show, we caught up with participating media artist Adham Faramawy on his video work ‘Sparkling Life, Pure Water, Healthy World,’ which was included in the show. Additionally, it featured Maria Gondek, Julie Grosche, Hannah Regel, David Stjernholm, Struan Teague, Gioia Di Girolamo and Andreas Ervik.

Through site-specific installation, painting and video, So Natural! explored the in-betweens of binary oppositions, using its structure as “a starting point to remove and reaffirm,” curating a space of diverse takes on “cultural/natural (and therefore political) value.”**

Like a Little Disaster’s So Natural group exhibition is on at Polignano a Mare’s Foothold gallery, running March 11 to April 18, 2017.
