Breathe. Now. Wherever you are.

The air that you breathe is yours only, the ground where you stand yours only, the space that your body fills yours only. Our presence in the present is very fragile, and sometimes really perceptible only for a few instants. With our minds in many places at the same time, our bodies only exist where the feet touch the ground. Every life is autoctona.

for Cluster Craft.

‘LifeAutoctona’ is a commissioned sculptural application of ‘Viral Nature’ for the CLUSTER CRAFTS 2020/21 curated exhibition, now digital and printed due to the outbreak of Covid-19.

LifeAutoctona addresses the theme ‘Soil’, one of the three themes identified by the curators of the show to talk about different kinds of materiality and human interaction with the matter.
