Other-Mother Self-Portrait with baby SCOBY (Symbiotic Cultures Of Bacteria & Yeast) Maaijke Middelbeek 2021
Zeitgleich mit FOTO WIEN
Other-Mother portrays a posthuman birth, a birth out of fermentation, symbiosis and interspecies care, a motherly relationship to the other-than-human. In challenging times of a pandemic and climate change we are forced to rethink our relationship to others that play crucial roles for our existence. Other-Mother tries to rehabilitate a bond to those that were at the very beginning of life. A microbial Renaissance.
Maaijke Middelbeek makes research on bio-materials and works with different organisms (eg. fungi, bacteria & algae) in her studio-lab. Her work crosses the disciplines of art (installation, sculpture, textiles) and biology.
