Pınar Yoldaş: An Ecosystem of Excess
22. June until 1. October 2023
The artist and scientist Pınar Yoldaş shows a new site-specific installation from her investigation “An Ecosystem of Excess”, which has been growing steadily since 2014. The focus is on the oceans – once the origin of evolution and today heavily infested with plastic. Starting from the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch,” Yoldaş creates a posthuman ecosystem. It includes speculative creatures that metabolize plastic. The work is created in cooperation with the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt as part of the exhibition “Plastic World.” There, the history of plastics in art will be examined and a broad panorama of the artistic use and evaluation of plastic in reflection of society will be shown.
