Living Among Companion Species

The central theme of this exhibition, curated by Maria Ptqk, is the realisation that the human species is changing. Not quite the species itself, but rather the idea of humans as a superior species. The aim is to show that all life on Earth is interdependent, involved in complex biological exchanges. Evolution is not simply a tree with humans at its pinnacle, but rather a network; a network of interspecies interchanges. A network comprising collaborations, mutations, exchanges, co-evolution and symbiosis, the etymological meaning of which is “living together”.
