Schipbreukeling – Mathieu Charles

Gustavo Crembil and Mae-Ling Lokko


Mycelium is the vegetative state of fungi that often gives rise to mushrooms. Underneath our forests or within the mass of organic substrates, they act as nature’s most sophisticated glue- transporting, breaking down and feeding so many parts of our ecosystem. This natural material technology is central to the work of Mae-Ling Lokko and Gustavo Crembil. Groundmurmurs is made up of a suspended catenary mesh of mycelium cylinders. The ancient relationship between the underground mycelia soldiers and trees are inverted. The participatory, distributed assembly of Groundmurmurs is a critical aspect of the mycelia-like methodology. The work aims to showcase and engage an existing, robust social infrastructure already present in Arnhem.
