Society of Nature (SoN) is a curatorial platform that assembles multiple perspectives through artistic and design agencies. SoN aims to create awareness of other forms of knowledge production by investigating natural resources and organic forms and bringing them into a constellation of realities where human and non-human borders are blurred.

SoN explores practices of seeing and hearing as active forms of social engagement and creation of conscious participation between the multiplicity of natural and social assemblages.

The project is conceived as experimental fieldwork, a space to coexist, cooperate and exchange ideas by turning our gaze towards the terrestrial: the view from our body.

The online Symposium ‘Where is Nature?’ is an introduction to the Society of Nature Exhibition, that will present the work of seven artists and designers. The exhibition will take place in June 2021 from the 3rd until the 19th at the OnCurating Project Space in Zurich.

Society of Nature is a project curated by Arianna Guidi, in collaboration with Nomadic Shapes, VIKA and Looking Forward and supported by Culture Ireland and the OnCurating Project Space in Zurich.
