The exhibition Mapping the Ground | Grounding the Map explores alternative relations to the earth as a critical reflection on the abstract cartographic methods that characterize the Anthropocene. From the two dimensional map of the world we need to return to the three dimensional earth to anchor ourselves again in its material processes. We need new images to retell the story of the cohabitation of human and earth. The artists in this presentation create alternative forms to map land in which the lived experience and connection to the earth, which gives shape to human and land alike is expressed.
