Devenires Transspecies explores the fundamental temporary connections between bacteria and plants between algae and fungi, as well as the unbreakable bond between microorganisms and humans. Transpecies Becomings seeks to intimately transform our understanding of the living as relationships of complicity. The show explores the temporal connections between bacteria and plants, fundamental connections between algae and fungi, as well as the indissoluble bond between microorganisms and humans. In all these relationships, beings are transformed by connecting with the other, giving rise to the emergence of new species that sustain life. These relationships, more common than we imagine, constitute the fundamental mechanism of evolution.
'Endosymbiotic Collaboration' (2023) collaboration with Andrew Carnie
Embracing collaboration at its core, this work unfolds as a series of tangible metaphors for meaningful connections. Drawing inspiration from the dynamics of a lichen, Andrew Carnie assumes the pivotal role of the supportive structure, while Maro contributes by infusing vital energy. The piece materializes through a collage that merges drawing, cyanotype, and sculpture, revealing the unique synthesis of their contributions.
Andrew Carnie is an artist and academic at Winchester School of Art, Southampton University. His practice often involves a meaningful interaction with scientists. He is part of the Critical Practices Research team where his interests lie in exploring the self, through notions of hybridity, in organ transplantation and immunology. Other themes and ideas are often based on neurology, the brain, and how we get a sense of ourselves through scientific ideas, and images The work is often time-based in nature, involving slide dissolve systems or video projection onto complex screens. In darkened spaces layered images appear and disappear on suspended voiles, the developing display absorbing the viewer into an expanded sense of space and time through slowly unfolding narratives that evolve around them. His work has been exhibited at the Science Museum, London, Natural History Museum, Rotterdam, Design Museum, Zurich, Exit Art, in New York, Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown, Great North Museum, Newcastle, Pera Museum, Istanbul, Dresden Hygiene Museum, Morevska Gallery, Brno, and the Daejeon Museum of Art, South Korea amongst many others, most recently the Hatton Gallery and Vane, Newcastle.
