Background, history, commissioner of the work

The series 'Pollinators 3018' was originally shown as a part of the group exhibition 'MN_03 Speculative Wasteland'. The exhibition was curated by curator duo Media Naranja, and took place in an empty shop space in Marseille in 2018. A part of the series was also shown in the group show 'The Chasm' in Vienna in 2019.

Thematic/contextual information

'Pollinators 3018' consists of a collection of insect-like sculptures, which can be installed on floors, walls or other surfaces. They are made with cast silicone and stand on thin steel wire legs, which can be adjusted according to the surface. They are imagined as a pollinating species in a far distant future from now. Reminiscing a mixture of human evolutionary descendants, cyborgs and animals, they reflect on the current threat to natural pollinators, and subsequently to humanity
