Her practice encapsulates a variety of mediums through which she researches possible implementation of feminist care practices through evoking a dialogue between material, writing, hosting and the audience. Within the world building that finds place in her practice, she speculates possible scenarios in which togetherness can build a long-term healing process in recognition of interdependence between communities and non-human companions.

MAP#158 presents
loose ends: meeting, meandering, wandering


(Text by Martina Latucca)

In loose ends: meeting, meandering, wandering, artists Abel Hartooni and Natalija Gucheva delve into questions about the aspects of artistic creation and its connection to life’s constant flux. Here, the glass corridor becomes a conversation of media such as paintings, ceramics and video, that unfolds fluid narratives.

Accompanying these visual artworks is a conjoint video work set in an imaginary landscape. In a non-linear narrative, the protagonists recall (inter)personal memories in order to initiate a dialogue. These memories intertwine with sensory experiences, evoking a sense of nostalgia and prompting the audience to reflect on life's transient nature.

Loose ends: meeting, meandering, wandering invites the audience to navigate the tensions between process and outcome, personal and collective memory, and other hybrids. Embracing the twists and turns of artistic exploration, Abel and Natalija challenge conventional notions of identity formation and meaning transformation, unraveling the complexity of existence and celebrating the fluidity of life's interconnectedness.
