Artist in Residence – Jasmin Märker

Jasmin Märker as Artist in Residence.

‘By engaging with fungal and bacterial cultures I seek analogies to societal cultures, exploring relevant scientific concepts and their philosophical paradigms. The nature of my work is very experimental. My project ideas frequently stem from scientific hypotheses of how something affects something, but my artistic imagination takes it from there.’ This woman was a total inspiration. When she was not cycling, she was foraging, fermenting everything in sight, baking amazing loaves of sour dough bread in the cave at Moyard and making art out of seaweed, mushrooms and bacteria.
