Beschrijving van het evenement
Studio Ossidiana gives a talk about their installation ‘Animal Encounters’, in which they will present their ongoing research project.

Over dit evenement

Animals did not enter people’s lives as meat or leather, rather, they first entered the human imagination as messengers and promises. The earliest drawings, and one could suppose, the earliest metaphors, were about animals. More than meat and leather, their relation to humans was essential in defining both the humane and the divine.

A transformative relation

This talk focuses on different scales at which animals have been institutionalized and abstracted. “The Cage”, “The Zoo", and “The National Park” will be highlighted as archetypes, just as the production of cultural and geographical contexts, and the definition of legal and political boundaries. Through these boundaries animals have been transformed: the wild has become domestic, the pet has become feral, the dangerous has become endangered. But people have also been transformed, becoming the domesticating species, the one that produces boundaries.

Dialogue across species

Through the lenses of design and architecture, this talk addresses these archetypes, investigating intersections and contradictions across their scales: from the domestic and the civic to the territorial. With the design of the installation Animal Encounters, Studio Ossidiana reimagines these boundaries and institutions not as spaces of confinement, whether for leisure or salvation, but as mediative places, possible translators in a dialogue across species.

Studio Ossidiana is formed by Giovani Bellotti and Alessandra Covini. Animal Encounters is the successor to Habitat: Expanding Architecture, and part of the Total Space project.
