When All Things Evaporate, We'll Talk About Minerals
<An Exhibition with Simone Couto at Pioneer Works in 2014>
2014 Media: Performance, a meteorite-shaped object made of books about meteorites
When All Things Evaporate We’ll Talk About Minerals is a one-night event focusing on the interaction between man, nature and culture, and the ways in which participants aspire the unknown and the uncertain beyond the imaginable. This show takes the human body as object/subject and natural objects as substance/projected meanings. The body of work is devided in two parts: nature before the imprinting of human marks and construction of language and after. With various co-operants whose identities are multiplied in networks, The Minerals presents various live performances among natural objects. The performers re-establish new relationships as they constantly act together with each other, with all the other objects and the audience. The show is a performative and collective endeavor.
