An exhibition of human and lichen site responsive installations by Marta Ferracin.

Convergences combines art, science, and technology to observe how humans and ‘other-than-humans’ form, cohabit, and respond within symbiotic relationships with their surroundings and primordial environments. The art space becomes a platform for dialogue about sharing with other species, including lichens. These conversations remind us to look beyond the dominant lens of the Anthropocene.

Shifting the unseen world into the macroscopic view and exploring the invisible, the exhibition highlights self-organised biological structures found in lichens and humans and shows the importance of the air’s components and its quality, on which the delicate equilibrium of lichens, human life and the planet rely.

Exhibition will be closed for Easter long weekend (29 March – 1 April 2024)
