The exhibition Lactism revolves around the central concepts of human connection, sociality and interactions between man and the environment. The exhibition is part of an ongoing project by the artists Shlomi Yaffe and Tamara Moyzes that deals with social aspects of environmental quality and egalitarian social imagination, in which the concept of justice also applies to that which is not human. ׳Lactism is a new monotheistic religion that is a product of the imagination of the artists and at the same time serves as a model of human relations and social organization, and focuses on the connection between different women from around the world of which the mother goddess Lactaria is composed, and imagines the existence of a society free from gender differences, geopolitical, religious and cultural. The goddess Lactaria, feeds the community via an underground network called mycelium (the vegetative part of mushrooms consisting of roots).
During the months of the exhibition, it will be possible to follow the growth of the mycelium as part of the display. The artists were inspired by the crucial role of the mycelium in ecosystems, where each fungal thread depends on and serves the whole. In the exhibition, the mycelium represents a new, feminine, boundless social structure, a matrix of kinship relations, care and nurturing.
