How do we spore the futures in which we want to live?
form & concept is delighted to present Entangled Futurities: metaspores for queer trans/genic symbionts, a new two-person exhibition featuring never-before-exhibited ink drawings, small sculptures and a sound installation by emerging New Mexico-based artists Tigre Mashaal-Lively and Pascal Emmer. Entangled Futurities is a collaborative intertwining of visionary fiction and material works by Emmer and Mashaal-Lively, which together form a relationship to the question: How do we spore the futures in which we want to live?
“This project speaks in the language of mycelium,” write the artists, referring to a multicellular fungi, invisible to the human eye until it forms what we commonly recognize as mushrooms. Inspired by this super-organism and its poetic application to humanity’s destructive sides (ie capitalism, racial supremacy, human hierarchies, militarism), Mashaal-Lively and Emmer illustrate and explore the natural disruption that has and is unfolding all around us (and beneath our feet).
