Serpentine Galleries present The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish with Plants, a multi-media and multi-disciplinary day-long event dedicated to plant sentience, plant intelligence, communication with the vegetal world and forms of mysticism and healing.
Featuring screenings, talks, listening sessions and performances by scientists, anthropologists, artists and theologians and musicians, The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish with Plants is the third in a series of events dedicated to ecology and consciousness across animal, vegetal, human and artificial species, which is part of the Serpentine's multi-year General Ecology project.
Participants include artists Saelia Aparicio, Antoine Bertin and Vivian Caccuri, film theorist Teresa Castro, theologian Amy Hollywood, artist Kapwani Kiwanga, anthropologist Natasha Myers, political philosopher Michael Marder, artist Tabita Rezaire, sound recordist Chris Watson, writer Elvia Wilk and more.
General Ecology is the Serpentine’s long-term and ongoing project researching complexity, posthumanism, the environment and climate change. General Ecology manifests through publications, exhibitions, study programmes, radio, symposia and live events bringing together practitioners from the fields of art, design, science, literature and anthropology, among many others.
The Shape of a Circle in the Mind of a Fish with Plants is curated by Lucia Pietroiusti (Curator, General Ecology, Serpentine) and writer and editor Filipa Ramos, with Holly Shuttleworth (Producer, Live Programmes, Serpentine) and Kostas Stasinopoulos (Assistant Curator, Live Programmes, Serpentine).
