SUBTERRANEAN ORGAN  is a durational, experimental programme curated by Daisy Wang @daisydiziiii and Celeste Viv Ly @virtio.djvu The exhibition programme inquires into the interiority and exteriority of the more-than-human body in relation to fluidity, contingency, and the architectural and performative spaces within and without.

Taking the manifold structure of an organ and biological osmosis as a method for charting the space, the programme reflects on how a body/space could be potentialised as a totality and the constituents of the totality in its fluidity and multifarious exchange. As the biological organ takes on abstract forms that are self-contained and yet infinitely interlinked within the bodily system and the ambient system outside the body, this programme maps the inner connection between the human and the more-than-human. It uses the body as a framework for bio-cosmic nourishment, building a ‘cosmology’ of life, where the form is fluidly mutable, dissolving and shaping itself anew. It is able to create a diverse instinct environment that expands our understanding of the body and its possibilities of inviting and engaging with alternate systems.

The artists in the show work across a range of mediums including sound, image, text, spatial works and live art, exploring how a work could be living, fluid, in becoming as singular entities and part of a larger collective entity through mobilising the in-between spaces, the process of interchange and transgression of boundaries. In blurring the lines between the inside and outside, self and other, and the human and more-than-human, the still and time-based works turn the exhibiting architectural space into a living, fluid, and disobedient collective body. Through this approach, we also aim to provide certain capacities of a nexus – to traverse, adapt, transcribe, and connect the subjectivities among its inhabitants, and most importantly, a continual process of feeling and thinking through the self and other in an intersubjective web of becoming.
