Emerging Artist Nadege Philippe-Janon
experiments with animation,
materials and elemental substances,
creating otherworldly miniature environments
that explore relationships
between human and non-human.
From an anthropocentric view of the world, humans are considered to be active and nature is considered passive. However, we are surrounded by ever changing processes, systems within systems, and inextricably entwined networks of interaction. MetaMatter explores these networks and offers us a less human centered view of the living and material world, questioning the Western influenced dichotomy between nature and culture to suggest that we are implicated in and connected to the vibrant world around us.
The works are created using animation and organic and inorganic ephemera, and emerge as miniature ecosystems in themselves, involving electricity, the gallery space and the viewer into their environments.
