Is your business secured in the case of ecological collapse? Or are you unsure?
Let us find out!
Oslo Apiary & Aviary is a dark-ecological tools, goods and service provider.
We work in the overlap between art and urban husbandry, specializing in performance and ecoventions;
Feeding birds, growing worms, keeping bees, tending trees.
A consistent line running through our work is an inspection of the performative qualities of the separation
of urbanity-nature and the private-public domain: By tending plants, birds and insects in the city, we question
what types of life belongs where. By subjugating ourselves to urban husbandry, we revitalize mutually
dependent modes of being. The entanglement allows for moments of enlivenment in a time of atomizing
individuation. We are in this together. Through our embedded practice we try to get a sense of the city’s
ontology - how the post-sustainable city is constituted and can, or can’t, be reconstituted.
Currently, 'can't'’ is in the lead, gothifying our practice. Drawing on strategies traditionally associated
with the double-roled artist, we find ourselves simultaneously planting trees, as well as branching out
into grave digging, death masks, wakes and last oils;
Identifying with the problem and with downcast gaze,
shoveling dirt in search
of a human-decentralized understanding of the world.
entrepreneurial doomsday cult for hire, toiling in the ruins of humanism.
