Edges of Matter Exhibition

Collective Haunt

2020

 

A collaborative exhibition with Emilija Kasumovic.

 

Edges of Matter seeks to explore the ambivalent boundaries between our perceptions of the living and the nonliving.

 

By delving into the invisible aspects of the worlds of technology and nature, artists Felicity Townsend and Emilija Kasumovic examine our co-existence and interactions within this immaterial realm.

Crystals are naturally occurring substances capable of many transformative states. They are also used extensively in our modern technologies. By using crystals as a metaphor for the 'living entity', Townsend and Kasumovic seek to override social binaries between nature and culture, finding parallels and connection points where these two worlds come together to enrich our experience of curiosity and wonder.
