Alexandra Dementieva in Chlorophilia
For the group exhibition Chlorophilia, that looks into the relation between light and the vegetational, Alexandra Dementieva focusses on a plant and a species that are omnipresent: moss and the tardigrade also called moss piglet. Since they have survived all mass extinctions chances are that they will be around forever. Moss and its piglet is a video diptych inspired by their eternity, in which Dementieva shows microscopic images of moss in the process of being saturated with water and a tardigrade searching for moss.
Moss and its piglet, Alexandra Dementieva.
