Curtain Call

Eduardo Wolfe-Alegria

In Curtain Call, Wolfe-Alegria questions the boundaries of “nature” by incorporating strategies of anthropomorphism and metamorphic figuration. In the exhibition seemingly inanimate objects and materials transform themselves, expressing a camp, performative subjective interiority. Through the incorporation of these strategies Curtain Call proposes an enchanted worldview as one which might help to renegotiate our relationship with the more than human world, evoking the mycelial network as a metaphor for beneficial symbiosis and inter-species care.
