More-than-human is a part of the 2022 Cement Fondu BETTER NATURE program. The creation of the universe implodes across a computer screen, the swell of a pregnant belly ripples with ocean tides, strands of knowledge converge in the Amazonian forest and yodeling can be heard in the distance. More-than-human features video artworks Grosse Fatigue by Camille Henrot (FR), Swell by Hannah Brontë (AUS), Forest Mind by Ursula Biemann (SWE), Just Because You Can't See It… by Karrabing Film Collective (AUS) and Put the goat in the goat boat and serve it hot by Heather Phillipson (UK). Each artwork traverses diverse ecological ideas from a more-than-human perspective, entangling us in environments, beings, and sensations.
Presented by Cement Fondu
In response to our time of ecological crisis, BETTER NATURE is a new annual program by Cement Fondu of art and events that embrace the complex entanglement between human and non-human worlds. Through a gallery exhibition and an expanded series of performances, activations, screenings, workshops and talks, the program will seek to inspire our better natures, igniting curiosity, appreciation and care for all species on this living, breathing planet. Each year, BETTER NATURE will explore different ecological ideas from a more-than-human perspective, challenging our prevailing human-centric paradigm to create moments of collective clarity and hope.
