uma biblioteca feita de estrume e cascas de fruta (compost library)

Color pencil on paper, text on wall; 2023

The exhibition is made up of a drawing series and wall text elements that create a fictional library for existent and speculative knowledges about naturecultures, politics, and history. The drawings refer to book covers, and while some use elements from published books, others combine text, typography, and images from different sources in collages that question epistemic categories and ideologies. The text above each door refers to the sections of a library: mixing the elements necessary for successful garden composting with the traditional human sciences.
