Ayesha Tan-Jones - Tectonic Incantations
✨Tectonic Incantation✨ is a solo exhibition by Ayesha Tan Jones that opened to public on 10 December. Produced by Harlesden High Street the show will premiere at the new off-site location Underground Flower - Belsize Park Gardens, a deactivated gym and swimming pool in North West London.
In the interview with Daria Khan, Ayesha talks about growing mushrooms, moss, and chlorella as elements in the show; disintegration and re-birth; working in an abandoned swimming pool, and using the tools of speculative fiction and queer optimistic dystopia to vision a regenerative future.
Ayesha’s new artworks expand from their previous operatic performances and the upcoming book, Parasites of Pangu commissioned by Serpentine Galleries
Stay tuned for further updates and Ayesha’s new interactive website that will be launched soon as part of the show, where you will be able to feed the organisms and contribute to their growth in the show.
Tectonic Incantation is curated by Daria Khan with support from Mimosa House Mimosa House
