DERMAPOLIESIS
By Matteo Cibic
at SEEDS


Matteo Cibic’s project at SEEDS interlaces a multitude of valuable references to arrive at the very personal story, of possible controlled animal and plant evolutions.
The narration develops along several levels: from two-dimensional paper to the digital, from the hybrid three-dimensionality of materials — ceramics, glass, fur, textiles — to the pungent volatility of odours, towards the unlikely "creatures" of the future. Their skeletons, decipherable, are mutations of living forms onto which a new, organic-digital story is grafted.
Inspired from the pioneering and obsessive research of naturalist Ernst Haeckel, who described and named a number of hypothetical ancestral microorganisms, to the founding method of the physicist and zoologist Carl Linnaeus, considered the father of taxonomy, to the tireless gesture of the visionary artist Luigi Serafini, who drew and wrote the encyclopaedia of an imaginary world in an indecipherable language.
