Hugo Canoilas: Panta Rhei

Hugo Canoilas, Eons of Time #2, 2020, glass

What happens when human exceptionalism and bounded individualism, those old saws of Western philosophy and political economics, become unthinkable in the best sciences, whether natural or social? Seriously unthinkable: not available to think with. Biological sciences have been especially potent in fermenting notions about all the mortal inhabitants of the Earth since the imperializing eighteenth century. Homo sapiens — the Human as species, the Anthropos as the human species, Modern Man — was a chief product of these knowledge practices. What happens when the best biologies of the twenty-first century cannot do their job with bounded individuals plus contexts, when organisms plus environments, or genes plus whatever they need, no longer sustain the overflowing richness of biological knowledges, if they ever did? What happens when organisms plus environments can hardly be remembered for the same reasons that even Western-indebted people can no [...]

"With training in painting, the artist has been examining the place of this artistic discipline, its perception by the viewer, and how much the exercise of its permanent mutation—making use of a vast array of languages and supports which includes many v" this is also the production of objects — can unfold in the form of facilities that give way to the creation of meaning constellations. " (Anna Anacleto)
