Encounter | Mohamed Y. Shika & Ferrero
Encounter is a project based on an attempt to explore different means of communication with the biosphere. By applying a practice of touching, observing, noticing, spending time doing something or nothing with the horse (Ferrero) It is an agenda-free meeting that experiments with a Nonhierarchical relationship. A casual meeting between human and other than human beings where they explore together the modes and meaning of communication. During Explorations of now you are invited to see documentation of the process in an installation involving photos, moving Images, writings, sound recordings. And to observe the ongoing exploration between Shika & Ferrero.
“Horses are strong beings. their speed, drive, strength, and power make us question the use of force as a means of communication with other beings and instead explore new ways of coexistence.”
