Floor 5

A Green Jade Lake is envisioned as an experiential journey that invites the visitor to wander through its different rooms and landscapes and to reflect on the idea of nature in the contemporary moment. In a situation of ecological fragility, we need to rethink the relationships and flows that are established between humans, ecosystems and their environments, and to take into consideration the new complexities that exist between the natural and the artificial.

Taking the image of a forest as its starting point, as the threshold beyond which categories become entwined, the exhibition includes experience, fiction, artistic work and research to allow us to explore new ways in which we can interact with the planet. Addressing different subjects such as coexistence, botany, territorial policies or the aesthetics associated with the representation of nature, the exhibition is understood as a constellation that creates open and transformative universes.

This exhibition proposes a new contemporary approach to nature in which all audiences, all bodies and all voices can participate.

The Institute for Postnatural Studies is a centre for artistic experimentation from which to explore and problematize the postnatural as a framework for contemporary creation. Founded  in 2020, the Institute is a platform for critical thinking, a network that brings together artists and researchers concerned about the issues of the global ecological crisis through experimental formats, sharing and producing open knowledge. The institute is structured around a physical space where workshops, conferences and exhibitions take place, as well as the production of theoretical material. The Institute also hosts two artistic production residences of writing and creation.
