Frothing, Foaming & Teeming
Annual Reportt, Copenhagen, DK.2017.

The dead ecologies of economy are haunted. Their geographies and bodies are looming over and shining out, as malign agents of a hyperobject wraith that looms over and shines out through all and everywhere. A seething bioform is cannibalizing the Company building in which it has been grown. The very architecture of the Company is blossoming into abject life, and sprouting ghosts that haunts the occupants, as they still seek to capitalize on the infested commercial enterprise. Three mercenaries and an alchemist roams through the headquarters of the European Central Bank, in search of a fabled magic mushroom reputed to grow within the semi-deserted building. What they find will illuminate something festering in both the building and themselves. In a nameless container-port, a shipping company is loading a mythic cargo onto a freighter. But in the metal cubicles of the port, forgotten things have lingered and grown, and from the sea, things rise and sink and rise again.

Frothing, Foaming & Teeming is both an exhibition and a graphic novel. The exhibition serves as a temporary physical index for the publication; the borders between the two porous, as their narratives and figures infiltrate and betray each other. Their story unfolds as fragments of ontological disaster-sites discharged by capitalism in a climate-chaotic age, where uncanny fictions infest geography and sprout visceral monsters, and radical otherness may be a way to resist inside the catastrophe.
