FASCINATING DOUBLE CREATURES
THE MYSTERIOUS WORLD OF LICHENS
Opening on Thursday, August 4 from 7:00 p.m.
Lichens are fascinating not only aesthetically but also conceptually, starting with the great metaphor of their being created from a symbiosis of organisms of different species. In a world that is constantly evolving, it is not the strongest that survives, but the one that adapts best. Lichens are able to survive under extreme conditions, as they are among the most resilient and at the same time the most sensitive of living beings.
Four international artists* now explore their shared fascination with lichens in a multidisciplinary group exhibition that introduces the viewer to the essence of lichens from different perspectives and creates a unique experience.
