36 contactable lifeforms

07. Juli 2020 - 13. Juli 2020
Galerie LaDøns, Valentinskamp 39

Hello, I hope you are doing ok.

Do not think of us as a parasite, we can live together cooperatively. Our boundaries are being very intensely managed.

You’re actually hearing something a billion miles away. There’s no need to be alarmed.


“Scientists say most likely number of contactable alien civilisations is 36.” 

36 contactable lifeforms brings together three responses to a human-centric understanding of communication. 

A view through the lens of a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeasts, the imagined soundscape of an alien location, and the cooperative intentions of sugar-eating beings…  

What would the terms of communication look like if they were restructured to include unimaginable lifeforms?
