The Worm: Terrestric, Fantastic and Wet
The exhibition of Anne Duk Hee Jordan and Pauline Doutreluingne, Germany, was shown on Campus Gotland 25 February - 5 March 2022. The event was part of GRASS Fellow, a collaboration between Uppsala University Graduate School in Sustainability Studies and the Baltic Art Center.
Anne Duk Hee Jordan’s work includes drawings, hand-built robots, edible landscapes, sculpture, film and sound. It is mainly the other life forms, insects and plants, that live alongside humans on Earth that she lovingly observes, invites and casts as lead characters in her art works. Together with Pauline Doutreluingne, she has created The Worm: Terrestrial, Fantastic and Wet, a film installation in which the viewer is given a fascinating insight into the world of worms. It explores biological, physiological and sexual aspects of the worm through soft sculptures, film and sound. The exhibition is a colourful and hallucinatory celebration of the worm in all its forms.
Anne Duk Hee Jordan is a Korean-German artist born in 1978. Pauline Doutrelouingne is a freelance curator and educator born in 1982 in Belgium. They work and live together in Berlin. Invited by the Public Art Agency Sweden, and in collaboration with the Baltic Art Center, they are currently working on "La Grande Bouffe", a sculptural installation and film based in the nature reserve Södra Hällarna. The work will be presented during 2022.
