The “Uncanny Garden” proposes a re-reading of possible relationships and communications we, as humans, can build with non-human agents, through the lens of decolonization. In this exhibition, we extend our invitation to question what can be conceived as natural knowledge,  and how this is confronted with a domestication of nature. 

The intertwined relationship between us and plants can be traced to our ornamental garden and current greenhouses. This exhibition is a call to speculate on the multiple ways in which human and non-human agents create a system. It is also a call to look at what we might miss at first glance. What universes can we find by just lifting a stone?

Works by Cristina Brambila, Laura Luna Castillo, Eunsun Choi, Stephanie Deumer,  Samuel Hertz, Malio Nelson, Bria Metzger, Alex Place, Afroditi Psarra, Althea Rao, Sadaf Sadri, Maria Thraen, Xiaowei Wang, Justin Zeitlinger.
