Eco Shifters refers to abilities to interact, adapt, transform, and create new relationships with the environment. With the vanishing of referential backgrounds, we are inevitably bound to unprecedented panoramas. Our daily navigation has become a far-out exchange of motionless protocols.

In these settings, once secluded artists turn into eco shifters, or denizens of a peripheral ecosystem through making permanent adjustments as the only strategies of adaptation and uncertain balance, in order to act as modifying agents.

Suffice it to say that any contribution to these omnipresent systems implies a shift in nature and relocation, going back to a temporary but conceptual solitude.

Artists: Jenny Brockmann, Elaine Byrne, Bel Falleiros, Ludovica Gioscia, Debora Hirsch, Sophie Kitching, Raphaela Melsohn, Natasa Prljevic, Bea Scaccia, Regina Parra, Devis Venturelli, Virginia Inés Vergara
