Fluidic Remembrane was a performative action and spatial installation based on the olfactory and sculptural mapping of the meadow and social space surrounding the Notgalerie.

Fluidic Remembrane included the extraction of a smellable fluidic supplement. Plants found on the meadow around the Notgalerie, mainly yarrows, thistles and johannis herbs, where extracted into a smelling hydrolate, using water-distillation. Through a system of tubes this liquid flowed into ceramic bottles, which where casts of plastic- and beer-bottles, waste of the human interaction on the territory.

Cushions, made of bacterial cellulose-elements and filled with textile waste, invited to sit down, smell and touch the various elements of this sensual field, which aims to fathom the agency of objects and material.
