A chronologically promiscuous bog

‘Uhrformen’, a group show curated by Sarabande residents Marta Klara and Louis Alderson-Bythell and Sarabande Alumnus Leo Carlton. Uhrformen welcomes you to consider the cadence between Geological, Biological and Digital time through a constellation of VR experience, Meditative space and Living Artefact.

Marta Klara continues to explore rituals of passage. She focuses on funeral ones that may become necessary as we bridge further between the physical and the digital world. The artist undertakes an experiment of digital mummification as a new path of preservation of human traces.

LAB presents primitive tools, enlivened with extreme microbial life to consider how our technologies not only extend our reach but also the reach of non-human life.

Leo creates space for metaphysical contemplation, where we meditate in singularity with our avatar as one multidimensional being.

Entertain these questions as you are enveloped and preserved by the air in the space, a concoction of embalming volatiles used to mummify Cleopatra. (Frankincense Olibanum, Cashmeran, Ambergris, Benzoin, Sacrum (Mirrah), Animalis, Saffran, Mango, Pink Pepper and Ivy). These works exist at distinct chronological timbres. Interacting with one another and transfigured to the human scale through soundscape by Anna Lann.

Through these works, consider :
What rots in the digital and what is preserved?
Will our tools outlive us and what other species will they sustain?
Will living cells merge with bytes?
Would our digital selves have a second life after we are gone?
And if a digital tree falls in a physical forest, who dies under it?

Yours Eternally,
Marta Klara, Louis and Leo
