Moral Turgeman Delivers an Ode to the Not-So-Magical Nature of Mushrooms in "Rooted Signals"
Exploring art, science and introspection.
Los Angeles’ Praz-Delavallade Projects is currently hosting “Rooted Signals,” an immersive exhibition by the versatile artist Moral Turgeman, dedicated to the resilience of mushrooms and their intricate mycelial networks. The artist sheds light on the intelligence of these unassuming multicellular organisms, which communicate and exchange vital nutrients through their complex mycelium.
The showcase seamlessly marries sound and sculpture, culminating in an immersive experience. Audioscape compositions harmonize seamlessly with vibrations emanating from a central lounger, enveloped by radiant mushroom sculptures.
At the core of Turgeman’s installation lies the representation of the mycorrhizal network’s growth and symbiotic relationships. The exhibition creates a meditative space that fosters introspection, prompting self-awareness through contemplative thoughts, evoked emotions and sensory experiences. “Rooted Signals” ingeniously blurs the lines between the organic and the technological, inviting viewers to embrace the interconnectedness of life.
“Rooted Signals” will remain on display at Praz-Delavallade Projects in Los Angeles until August 19.
