'Crosspollination' by Yein Lee & Ivan Pérard at Loggia, Vienna

The works on display are exactly the same. Even though the sizes, shapes, scales, stomach-feelings and intentions are different. While sharing space together, they might have different dynamics, but their longings are shared.

They want the same, the same as you. Safety, food, hugs, good temperature, good chemicals, good music, love and trance. You can hurt other organisms. You can sleep between their wings and give them warmth. You can eat their fungi, these might be beneficial for your immune system, or you might be the fungi and live in their brains. For these works of Yein Lee and Ivan Pérard, it is of the utmost importance that they share space.

Some bodies might be travelling towards other bodies. We‘re not completely sure why these bioships for microbes have halted their interstellar travels to convene and approach these oily but shy bad-boys. Maybe these microbial megacities are waiting for a signal to go pollinate? Maybe the gore tentacles have been sending love vibrations on the macrowaves for millennia? Maybe they carry their flowers in just the right way? Right there, like a bedside wink? Maybe they‘re sufficiently spiky? Maybe they just smell horrifyingly great.

As humans we are really bad at understanding living biology and attraction, we patch a layer on top showing our limited scope of society, and yet it‘s all there. Interconnectedness, co-reliability, co-dependency, these are not marketing terms, they describe the necessity for organisms to coexist and procreate. As these works meet in this exhibition, that‘s what we hope to show you by crosspollinating.
