Mette Ingvartsen


Part of the retrospective “The Artificial Nature Series”


70 min.

“Speculations” takes the form of a lecture performance. Ideas around artificial nature, catastrophic constructions and the autonomy of objects are being processed through talking, gesturing and moving. Speech and physical actions are given equal value, while being used to materialize a virtual performance within the mind of the spectator.
