ROT ISSUE ZERO is the publication for « wicked technology/wild fermentation »
an artistic research focused on forms and practices of fermentation as ways to rethink bodies and their makings.
Not asking why do we ferment today but where does it stop?
The glossy magazine performs the research by wanting to infect the reader at the same time questioning how to spread, publish and make the work survive.
Wicked technology/wild fermentation (2019-2020) is a project considering ethics and aesthetics of fermentation in relation to artistic research.
Sampling, queering, transferring a prototype, feeding, inoculating, oxygenating, composting, tasting are processes involved in live cultures.
Fermentation techniques challenge ideas of transformation, cannibalism, wildness, exuberance, excess, noise, opacity, death.
With this research, I would like to create a space for doing thinking with experts and fearless amateurs.
The aim is to produce knowledgeable experience for artistic practices.
