The prevailing consensus in contemporary societal discourse is that nature had been irreversibly affected by human activity. Whether we are talking about climate change or plastic pollution, the changes converge around a single agent. They can only be mitigated, but not reverted to their pre-existing state.
This is probably why there is a growing voice in contemporary art that is looking for ways to function inthis changed regime and how to grasp this new state of the world. The exhibition "Archivist of hybrids" is a project that builds on previous authorial series of Ľudmila Machová.
Machová invites the viewer into a shared space, an environment in which the human and the natural merge into one particular symbiotic meditative whole.
