DIMENSIONS OF GROWTH seeks to explore the erratic mutable figurations of nature and its material organic irregularities which are implicit to a process of ongoing speciation. The sculptures consider the distorted morphologies of growth, rudimentary-staged bodies enfolding into each other which, unrecognized as social agents, are in a constant search for new metaphors to bring them into appearance. While capitalist ideologies threaten to reduce nature to a series of seductive simplifications, reinforcing a discourse of violent epistemic classification, these sculptures manifest as unnamed quasi-objects, assertive against biological determinism and economic fitness. They are altered embodiments of the metabolic rift between natural systems and social systems, reproduced in ever-new forms of alienation under capitalism, carrying within the indeterminacy of their own descendance and the mutation of their corporeal shape.The exhibition will be activated during by a performance developed and curated by Anca Bucur and enacted by Cristian Nanculescu, Maria Mora and Paula Dunker. The performativity of human bodies converges towards the agency of quasi-objects, leading the differences between human and non-human to fall along a continuum, itself the product of evolutionary forces, while laying open ecological boundaries. The sound-piece included in the exhibition is a collaboration between Anca Bucur and the sound artist Chlorys.
