Performative Action in installative Set-up / Ceramics, Bacterial Cellulose, Plastic-Tubes, Distiller, Plants, Table

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 where 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.
