“There are a hundred thousand species of love, separately invented, each more ingenious than the last, and every one of them keeps making things.”
— Richard Powers

it was the beginning, it was the end, it was the continuity
trash turned to tea bags, dyeing the world a new shade of green
a lot of sex going on, the distinction gone between you and me
everyone was everything and needed only each other and coffee

from the fortress and sulphuric muck
tiny fish knives too cute to cut
morte life is not dead life
but still life is tough

smash a lot, smash a lot, but keep the pieces close
pancakes turned to scramble but maybe they’re still edible
weave this shit together, yea, that’s all that we know
let the flies and mold and rust and roots and stains show

We enlisted the help of our combined communities, who provided textual descriptions of plants/animals of the future which were interpreted into the imagery in this show. We appreciate the enthusiastic contributions of: Isabelle Albuquerque, Fina Anjou & Niklas Büe, Ingrid Blix, Francesca Brusa, Antoine Dochniak, Lena Heinz, Valentýna Janů, Annika Kappner, Štěpán Krahulec, Monica Mays, Theis Madsen & David Haack Monberg, Kaspar Molzberger, Roxie Perkins, Eva Reutinger, Nolwenn Salaün, Tomasz Skibicki, Géraldine Soares.

Special thanks to the Kafe•Petro for collecting their scraps for us to use as dye matter, especially Lenka Bondorová and David Fisk.
Our fabric is all sourced secondhand, from old bed sheets to beautiful Czech produced canvas from our friend, Lenka Vacková at Textile Mountain.
We would also like to thank the whole Petrohradská kolektiv crew, especially Bára Hosová and Mojmír Měchura for their support and warmth.

Anna & Garance

Anna Reutinger (b. 1991) is a Berlin based artist from Oakland, California. Oscillating between incidental and intentional gestures, Reutinger’s work proposes a return to craft as seed for social, material and environmental empathy. In her sculpture and installation practice, she uses waste and found material to construct objects and situations, which act as social and bodily antidotes to digital anxieties and environmental uncertainties. She received her M.F.A. in Dirty Art from the Sandberg Instituut in Amsterdam (2016) where she currently teaches, and her B.A. in Design Media Arts and Digital Humanities from UCLA (2013). Her work has been exhibited at the KlaraKiss Zipspace, CH; Saint Etienne Biennale, FR; Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht, NL; W139, Amsterdam, NL; Macao Milano, IT; De Fabriek, NL; The Hammer Museum and The Getty Center, Los Angeles, US.

Garance Wullschleger (b. 1993) is a French-Swiss artist who lives and works in Lyon. Through performance and installation, Wullschleger concocts peripheral narratives of today. Working from lived and collected experience, she samples worlds around her, from the scale of her body to the globe. Through manipulations, camouflages, and montages, she redirects the gaze to immerse the visitor into a universe offset from reality. She has received her M.F.A. from ENSBA Lyon and studied Textile Arts at Martinière Diderot. Her work has been recently exhibited at the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard, Paris FR; KlaraKiss Zipspace, Zurich CH; Academiæ Biennale, Bolzano, IT; Gallo Roman Museum, St-Romain-en-Gal, FR.

Petrohradská kolektiv Residency Project and Exhibition Program Jedna Dva Tři Gallery is supported in 2019 by the City of Prague, the State Fund of Culture of the Czech Republic and the City District of Prague 10.
