Description

The artists of the show have worked for many years in the context of the natural sciences, research, and ecology. For the Hildesheim exhibition they have taken up topics from the museum’s geological collection and employed scientific methodology for their own fictional documentations.

They slip into the role of amateur scientists setting up beehives, baiting birds of paradise, or collecting gene data. They undertake expeditions to the edges of the earth with the verve of an explorer or archive weeds, insects, and trees in the urban space.

As the exhibition title suggests, they observe animals, reflect on the passage of time, and devote themselves to subtle changes in our environment.
