Both the neurotic desire for control
And the fantasy of something pristine

Painting a hyper green circle on a dying meadow with the means of chlorophyll extracted from an exponentially larger patch of lush grass and herbs. A reenactment of the absurdist desire to create eden even in the most hostile of environment, despite exploitation.
Performance and tasting, 10 min
Combining environmental embodiment with the extraction of raw materials, relating, organizing & processing them. Climbing up that mountain, walking down that stream, getting lost in an old mining ground, time and time again. Forced into thinking deep time in order to understand its emergence. Working with the illusory nature-culture binary is an attempt to grasp its fluidity, finding the irony, its movement along a line and the traces it leaves.
