During the artistic research preceding the creation of the pavilion, each member of the collective proposed one exercise to be performed in the former slaughterhouse where the Prague Quadrennial 2023 is taking place.
Those exercises were meant as methods of exploring the relations between bodies, space and imagination. They enabled us to be more attentive toward the place where we were working—a site vibrating with multispecies entanglements; their difficult pasts and possible futures. Performing those exercises made us feel that neither is the skin a boundary of our body, nor do the eyes let us see all the bodies that constantly change us, shape us, make us become more than human.
We are one with the environment that we inhabit, inevitably involved in its intricate affairs. Now, we would like to share with you this collection of tools and methods of looking, touching, feeling and smelling around, as an invitation to explore some aspects of our work process.
