„fruit, seeds“

„fruit, seeds“ is a multimedia group exhibition by which the artists intentionally locate and expose themselves and their works in the between, the “still fi guring out” and the (un)becoming – a process which requires constant watering, so as to reap what is sown.

“Seed to tree, Tree to forest,
Rain to river, Need to feed,
Creature to teacher,
Teacher to student,
Student to caretaker”
(Extract from Octavia Butler’s “Parable of the Sower”, 1993)

Artists:Y uliana Pineda, Ariella Bowen, Sedra Hamami, Merit Hanna, Aljeen Hasan, Katherine Duque Leon, Alba Hurtado, Tayla Myree, Moses Omeogo, Banan Sakbani, Ami Siregar, Esmail Sultani
