Zooetics Pavilion at the 32nd Sao Paulo Bienal

The installation at 32nd Sao Paulo Bienal draws inspiration from the short-stories found in Vermilion Sands (1971), a science fiction book by English author J. G. Ballard, which imagines a world where technological devices would be alive and sentient, such as a house capable of responding to the emotional states of its inhabitants. Zooetics Pavilion provides the concept of a future in which objects can not only be constructed but also cultivated by its human inhabitants and users – and vice versa.

Using mycelium, the part of the fungus responsible for the absorption of nutrients, oxygen, and energy in a symbiotic relationship with other cultures and materials, participants can create their own biotechnological artifacts – mycomorphs, promoting mycelium’s interaction with coffee skin, sugar cane bagasse, corn pollard or eucalyptus saw dust.
