Info & CV

Hevea, 2021

Catalogue published as part of Goldrausch 2021. Design by Alina Schmuch. Essay by Kassandra Nakas:

“Hevea ist spekulativ, weil Bethan Hughes neben den Objekten auch die Bilder unserer Gegenwart in den Blick nimmt: computergenerierte Bildwelten, die in ihrer permanenren Verformbarkeit ein unerwartetes visuelles Echo der geschmeidigen Plastizität des allgegenärtigen Gummis sind.” 
"Hevea is speculative because Bethan Hughes focuses not only on objects but also on the images of our present: computer-generated visual worlds whose permanent malleability is an unexpected visual echo of the supple plasticity of the ubiquitous material rubber."
