EUROPALIA CURATOR'S AWARD Laura Herman & Charlotte Dumoncel d'Argence
Conversation in English
"We wear palm oil lipstick while we leaf through imperial travelogues and uncompromised business plans. We watch documentaries on prosthetic coral reefs and witness rainforests turning into lumber. We stroll on pink sand beaches littered with plastiglomerate and cross paths with long-lost spirit animals. Perhaps species is no longer the right unit to classify earthbound life?"
The project 'Natural Capital' by the curators Laura Herman and Charlotte Dumoncel d'Argence was selected for the EUROPALIA CURATOR'S AWARD. Together with three artists of their choice, they went in residency in Indonesia to work around the theme of biodiversity of the archipelago.
