Traces of the Future: archaeology of modern science in Africa
New work from Evgenia Arbugaeva and Mariele Neudecker, with original objects and materials collected during historical-anthropological research at Amani Hill Research Station, Tanzania.
“Traces of the Future” will take audiences deep into the Tanzanian rainforest through an innovative exhibition of new artwork and original archival objects from Amani – meaning peace in Kiswahili – Hill Research Station. This will be the first UK exhibition of Russian photographer Evgenia Arbugaeva’s 12 celebrated photographs – as featured in December 2016’s National Geographic – together with 11 new photo works and three new films from renowned multi-media artist Mariele Neudecker, all made on the Amani residency.
Objects on display will include original specimens collected in the surrounding jungle, as well as a plethora of experimental and exploring equipment, staged to create a “wunderkammer” experience for visitors.
Traces of the Future, with accompanying events and scientific institutional partners, will bring this innovative investigation to the late-nineteenth century Nunnery Gallery – an East End space that also brings traces of its social past into its present and future.
