Tipping Points @ Podium, Apr 22 – May 8

22 April 2016

The Tipping Points — Flourish and Collapse in the Circularity of the Geostory group exhibition is on at Oslo’s Podium, opening April 22 and running to May 8.

Curated by Angela Chan and including artists Joey Holder and Jakob Kudsk Steensen among others, the show contemplates the so-called ‘tipping point’ of climate change and man-made mass species extinction.

The event opens on this year’s Earth Day with performances by Andreas Ervik, and Rachel Pimm with Lori E. Allen, amid calls for “an activation of symbiosis between Earthlings of all species, to end the hyper-branded avant-luxury environment of the Capitalocene and to eradicate all traces of the combusted Anthropocene.”

The press release takes a quote from author of the ‘Cyborg Manifesto’ Donna Harraway as a starting point, “I am a compost-ist, not a posthuman-ist: we are all compost, not posthuman” and ends on a projected “Chthulucene re-worlding for a multispecies ecojustice.”

Rachel Pimm + Lori E Allen @ Chisenhale Gallery, Aug 20

19 August 2015

Artist Rachel Pimm joins archaeological sound designer Lori E Allen for a presentation titled Worming out of shit at London’s Chisenhale Gallery on August 20.

Using performance and sound, the presentation explores “Pimm’s research into the roles of soil strata and landfill in the composition of the earth’s surface”, examining the instability that occurs when man-made materials combine with organic ones.

For the presentation, Zimbabwe-born and London- and New Delhi-based Pimm—who is one of the co-founders of the artist-run project Auto Italia South East —joins Allen in creating a unique audio landscape.
