Event Details

A non-native ornamental plant breaks the horticultural bounds of the garden that sought to contain it. Co-opting the airflow of a railway network it travels across the country.

The mineral deposits of an ancient ocean, now buried in a layer of strata, are mined for fertiliser production. Spread on pastureland, they trickle through irrigation systems to a local lake, where they cause an algal bloom.

Dried seas from a supermarket shelf draw out lactic bacteria from shredded cabbage. Fermenting the vegetable, the bacterium mingles with a diverse gut ecology.

Anthrosoluble Dispersion is an exhibition and research presentation by contemporary artist Jules Varnedoe.  Featuring video, sound, research materials, sculptures, food and conversations with the artist, the exhibition will draw upon Jules’ research into oceanic futurism, displaced geologies, the proliferation of non-native species and the intersection of human infrastructures with landscapes and other organisms.

Exhibition runs 22/23/24 September
