About Entangled Intelligences

Fusebox Festival | Tyrell Gallery

​Entangled Intelligences invites visitors to experience a unique exhibition that challenges anthropocentric thinking and embraces the diverse forms of intelligence found in the natural world. Featuring works by the Ecocentric Future Lab directed by Jiabao Li and other renowned artists, this exhibition explores the dynamic range of non-human intelligences, offering a fresh perspective on our connection with the natural world.

Each artwork in Entangled Intelligences is a collaboration between the artist and an animal, demonstrating how art can transcend the human realm and foster a deeper understanding of other species. Through innovative uses of technology, unconventional materials, and intimate collaborations with animals, Entangled Intelligences urges viewers to reconsider their relationship with the environment and embrace a deeper understanding of the complex connections that bind us to the living world. The exhibition serves as both a catalyst for reflection and an invitation to reimagine our roles within the vast and interconnected tapestry of life on Earth.
