The group exhibition Echoes of Our Stories brings together the work of Claudia Martínez Garay, Diana Policarpo, Jennifer Tee, Agnes Waruguru and Müge Yilmaz. Five artists who all tell stories in different ways that reshape our relationship with the environment and more-than-humans. The title of this exhibition is derived from an essay by botanist and Citizen of Potawatomi Nation, Robin Wall Kimmerer. In a time of climate crisis and deep uncertainty about our survival, she turns to the stories of her ancestors. It is the plant teachers such as mosses and sweet grass that can guide us and show us a different way of living together. It is the origin stories and cosmologies Kimmerer refers to, that can speak not just of where we came from, but how we got here and how we can move forward too. We need to revisit the echoes of those narratives.

The artists in this exhibition weave stories that make us look at the world around us in a different way, than the dominant Western way and help us make sense of that world. They propose new worldviews, spiritual, healing and futuristic alternatives in which the harsh dichotomies between human-nature, above-below, center-margin are subverted.

Curated by Aveline de Bruin and Laurie Cluitmans, in close collaboration with Heske ten Cate and Filipa Oliveira.
