Anthropomorphic Trouble – a performance by Goda Palekaitė and Adrijana Gvozdenović at Whitechapel Gallery

Author Echo Gone Wrong

Adopting the lens of the Earth as a historical figure and discursive being, Anthropomorphic Trouble – a project by artists Goda Palekaitė and Adrijana Gvozdenović – addresses ecological challenges, deep time and geological formations, unearthing the troubled relationship between humans and the Earth.  

Guided by artists, this public encounter aims to open the possibility to experience and discuss anthropomorphic troubles, as they share their research, stories and works developed in the past two years. Looking at the transitional moments within the history of science and questioning the scientific museological display, the artists invite you to spend time with the bodies of stones, view a video from the fieldwork portraying non-human protagonists, and engage with the history of Earth in a tactile way – in other words, to exercise your gaze and touch for a different knowledge of landscape and time.  

This event is part of the series Ways of Knowing: Earth/Matter.

In partnership with Arts Catalyst and Delfina Foundation. 

Supported by Lithuanian Council for Culture, Lithuanian Culture Institute and Hasselt University. 

Sat 20 & Sun 21 Nov | 2pm, 3.30pm, 5pm
