multimedia installation, sound; 2023

The exhibition at Gep├Ąckausgabe developed from an artist residency in Glarus with filmmaker Jonathan Ospina. lalala expedition (100 million years of progress) follows the narratives of the earth around Glarus to reflect on how geological events relate to political imaginaries. Constructed as a liminal space where the historical and sensorial articulate different visions about landscape, mining, and time, this multimedia installation was made up of material collected in field recordings, photo archives, and theoretical texts.
