You are warmly invited to >top Schillerpalais on Sunday, May 28 at 4pm for our next Artist Talk & Soup. This session will feature a talk by Desiree Förster, followed by a mini-performance by Mélodie Melak Fenez. Moderated by Elizabeth McTernan.

The Aesthetic Non-conscious
on embodied relations, relational ontologies and art as experiential space.

This presentation will give insight into Desiree’s research on pre-reflective perception modalities as part of designed spaces and how the stimulation of those modes mediates the relationship between brain, body, and environment. In this mediation, the experience of interrelation might lead to new embodiment processes and new subjectifications.

Although tiny, diatoms play an immense role in keeping the planet’s ecosystem working. They’re important mediators of carbon and oxygen cycles, an integral component of marine food webs and the principal cycles of silica, which constitutes 25% of the Earth’s crust.

Private View The painting laboratory- Gestures of Alchemy

Friday 5th May 6-10pm

Group show with works by Jonathan Stubbs, Louise Mary Thomas and Hannah-Turner-Duffin.

Of lines that fade in and out,
Up and down,
Moving with an uncontrollable stream of consciousness,
Weaving in, dipping.’
