Mara Fortes Inner Space: miniature epics

Inner Space: miniature epics

Featuring an array of techniques—from collage, animation, time-lapse, and meticulous sound design—attuned to the rustle of motile life forms, this selection of short works navigates the vast expanse of inner worlds untethered from a human scale. Embedded in each thrilling endoscopic exploration lies the artists’ distinct awareness of how scientific conventions, myth, film, and genre mediate our “natural” habitats: from sentient architectures of mineral and plant forms, operatic dramas of bodily processes, and remote murmurs of interstellar traffic to mental emanations that bloom into surreal creations. Transmuted by sensibilities ranging from the gothic to the comedic, this program will evoke fables of ecological distress, extra-terrestrial intelligence, and parasitic attachment: This is sci-fi beyond the reach of the eye. Featuring work by Nicolas Brault, Catherine Chalmers, Rachel Mayeri, Saskia Olde Wolbers, Momoko Seto, Stacey Steers, Seán Vicary.
