“Biemann belongs to a vanishingly small cohort of practitioners to have achieved a practical and conceptual “parity” with the vital metabolisms that underpin the material world beyond the reach of routine human experience.Her primary interest is the reciprocal arising of knowledge and world(s), a process she sees as operating all the way down, as a social, political, and even somatic capture of broader, more remote geochemical processes.” S.K.

Amos Rex, Helsinki

The underground world is enigmatic, exciting, alluring, dangerous and mysterious. There is much more beneath the earth’s surface besides earth, minerals and roots.

The Subterranean group exhibition uses four themes to explore how artists through the centuries have depicted the worlds beneath our feet. I’m showing Black Sea Files.
