The Lives Beneath

Bianca Kennedy and Felix Kraus depict a world in the year 4000. Everything in nature gets merged into one single mind. Plants, animals and hybrid human beings form a worldwide super-network of conciousness. The few remaining non-hybrid humans are being forced to live underwater in floating shiplike cities. Humans try to convince nature that they‘re still valuable, using songs, meditation and yoga. The Lives Beneath examines the downfall of a society that refuses to live with nature in harmony. But on the other side is a self-conscious planet,which suffers from the burden of having to think for all eternity. For the exhibition at Espronceda in February 2016 they created a multidimensional experience, ranging from the central film to suspended metal sculptures, drawings, sounds, shadow animations, paper embossments, collages and a stunning installation: The visitor can enter the cabin of a ship, diving into their world even deeper.
