New Materialisms

By emphasizing the expressiveness of matter, its dynamism and its agentivity, neo-materialist theories distinguish themselves from classical materialist philosophy, which tends to perceive matter as being essentially passive and inert. This feature reflects on the reconfiguration of matter in the light of social, political, artistic and scientific practices that are no longer confined to the human spectrum, but concern the whole of "life," including the "non-living."

New New Age

Over the last few years, the occult has made a stunning comeback in art, manifested through a re-appropriation of esoterism, a holistic and beneficial approach, and a desire for social and ecological justice. The works in the portfolio New New Age stand out for their powerful intention to re-enchant the world, recognize the agency of matter, and campaign against the destruction of Earth and for all living things, by exploring what is luminous and performative in this philosophy and its rituals.
