Biography / META

Adriana Tamargo and Guillermo Escribano are part of META-colectivo, an artistic collective from Donostia (Basque Country, Spain), and focused on visualizing possible future scenarios and alternative realities. Mixing Guillermo’s background in architecture and visual arts and Adriana’s in bio-design, they come together in the interest of non-anthropocentric worlding and material practices that show our dependency with other living organisms we coexist with and thanks to.

About the project 

Collective Matters, from organic waste to urban living sculptures.

Through the project Collective Matters, the collective aims to question their mainstream anthropocentric view and start generating new bio-cultural narratives. How would art as an ecosystem be created? The proposal is a hands-on approach to transform organic waste into urban living sculptures collectively. These sculptures will be non-anthropomorphic, biodegradable, always changing, and co-produced and co-authored by Berlin’s citizens, both humans, and non-humans. Intending to blur the boundaries of the dichotomy human-made / nature-made, organic sculptures will be created in collaboration with climate agents and living organisms such as mold, rain, wind… and will be placed on different points of the city. How can the separation human – nature be erased from the collective imaginary?
