Fruits of Matadero
Fruits of Matadero is a public commission by Matadero Madrid and the Mutant Institute of Environmental
Narratives, Spain and featured at EKG. The concept explores the potential of growing microbially-augmented
popsicles to develop new forms of cooling rituals in public space. The project responds to necessity of acclimating the intense heat waves experienced in Madrid due to extreme urbanization and the climate crisis. This exhibition is organized in conjunction with an installation that is currently on display as part of “Ecovisionaries: Art for a Planet in A State of Emergency” exhibition in Madrid.
