The Future is Dark...I think
August 2022, La Datcha, Berlin

[exhibition poster & text]

Following years of coorespondence and much delay, during the summer of 2022, Maggie Groat & I each held independant residencies at La Datcha working closely with Jessica Groome and the space itself, a Schrebergarten located in Volkspark Rehberge (Berlin Wedding).

La Datcha was transformed through a whirlwind of activity: sweeping, raking, weeding, watering, observing, playing, searching for spiders, renovating, gathering, assembling, watching, arriving, and making.

The culmination of our collaborative activities resulted in the exhibition The Future is Dark... I Think hosted by Project Space Festival Berlin.

I continued the “_~form_” series with site~form_willkommen, a goopy gate covered in salt dough mixed with, blackberry, plant material, banana, cane sugar, beer, Aperol, pinot noir, and Baba Jaga spirits; dream~form_Baba Jaga, a very long-lasting jute and beeswax candle; and several site~form_moon-milks, small conglomerate assortments of rocks painted with milk paint and moth bait, an all day slurp-fest for wasps and slugs.
