Jupiter Artland’s 2019 season opens with the first solo exhibition in the UK of artist Daniel Lie.
This exhibition is the culmination of a two-year research partnership focusing on decentring human agency in favour of other actors in our shared ecological and emotional field.
Lie will be using both indoor galleries and outdoor spaces at Jupiter Artland to create a series of immersive installations utilising raw materials sourced from the Jupiter Artland landscape including flora, wool, clay and wood.
From vast accumulations of live flowers gradually decaying to traditional ceramics slowly cultivating native fungi and spaces physically heated by bio-digestion heaps, Lie’s visceral environments will play collaboratively with natural processes, foregrounding the agency of organisms and harnessing their energy.
Combining organic sculptural forms with sound within performative space, Daniel’s installation will shift and transform throughout its lifespan creating what the artist describes as a ‘geography of emotion’ provoking the audience’s senses in conflicting ways and showcasing the artist’s interests in ecology, ritual and cycles of life and death.
