Congratulations to Tricky Walsh who will be exhibiting new work in “Cosmopolis # 2: rethinking the human” from 23 October – 23 December at Centre Pompidou, Paris.
“Cosmopolis # 2” presents constellations of works around technological diversity, the relationship between place and scale, and the affirmation of other modes of existence and cosmologies.
As part of the ‘Cosmopolis’ platform which was launched by the Centre Pompidou in 2017, Tricky Walsh will be exhibiting new work in “Cosmopolis # 2: rethinking the human”.
Cosmopolis includes artist residencies, concerts, talks, and educational programs. It highlights artistic practices at the crossroads of disciplines and research-based that are rooted in a specific context. The project takes into account creative practices that engage in international conversations, contemporary ideas and reflects on social and cultural translation. The artists presented pay close attention to questions of social formations, value systems and technological divergence to artistic explorations of the entanglement of the human and the non-human.
In 2018, Walsh exhibited a “Field kit” version of her installation “The Ana-katascope” in Chengdu, China as part of the Centre Pompidou exhibition “Cosmopolis # 1.5: Enlarged Intelligence” It is comprised of an interconnected series of sculptural pieces and a gouache on paper triptych that responded to the promotion of social values through smart technologies and ecological intelligence.
