From the press release:
Artistic Ecologies Every Day initiates a dialogue between two artists – Vlatka Horvat and Marina Naprushkina – whose distinctive practices bridge practical and speculative, personal and political, artistic and activist sensibilities. Using a wide range of interdisciplinary and collaborative formats, both artists work to reconfigure social and physical limitations in their immediate surroundings. The exhibition brings together their recent and newly produced works across painting, installation, photography and video, including also a workshop framed as part of the project. Artistic Ecologies Every Day refers to “an ecology of practice” that Isabelle Stengers defines as “a tool for thinking through what is happening” – a tool that is “never neutral”. The exhibition approaches artistic ecologies as a process involving actions one does every day. These actions – in the form of small gestures, personal rituals and self-imposed tasks, become provisional tools and strategies relevant for wider communities.
