Microbial Familiars

A relational installation for Nature Reserves curated by Tom Jeffreys at GV Art Gallery, London

12 vessels of live Kombucha tea cultivated and tended in the homes of friends and descended from a culture grown in the artists home were displayed live and growing in the gallery for the duration of the exhibition. The work is a play on the meaning of culture and an exercise in interspecies collaboration which confronts the agency and performativity of matter and the reality of biological memory and storytelling as a formal and embodied process.
