Hyeonju Lee, Niklas Büscher (Fine Arts)
Situated at the threshold of slippery amateur porn and soothing nature documentary, Polyps imagines the sensual life of sea anemones and their befriended species. In the great, wet interiority that is the sea, beings are revealed as inseparable from lifelong dependencies on feel and touch. Subjectivity emerges headlessly between flora and fauna, molar and molecular, inside and outside.
