The Mycological Twist is a nomadic, collective project by Eloïse Bonneviot and Anne de Boer. With a strong interest in fungi and permaculture, their work mines ecology and looks to the building of sustainable structures. For them, this process unfolds in the context of both the garden and the exhibition space — which at times even coexist.

Recently, their work has been featured in the exhibition ‘Mushrooms: The Art, Design and Future of Fungi’ at Somerset House in London. A forthcoming group exhibition at Ashley Berlin has been postponed for the time being due to the corona shutdown.

How would you describe your practice?

We have always had a very open-ended approach to making work under the umbrella of the Mycological Twist. It functions more as a field of research, an area of inquiry we are keen on exploring. This means that very often we aren’t so concerned about formats, or how things will look. There is something very liberating in doing work that way. From the onset our first installation in JupiterWoods’ garden was a testimony to that approach. It was a weird mix of design and conceptual elements, while we immediately started to invite people we were interested in to share knowledge. So in a sense the Mycological Twist is almost more like a platform of knowledge exchange and collaboration.
