“Language and labor defined for centuries the position of the human, but can you imagine leaving that position to become a flower? Can you imagine that the notion of metamorphosis is nothing else but another way of naming an inexhaustible goodwill? A force that runs through the human and the non-human so as to navigate the many orders that constitute life, avoiding the pests of the Modern project and its insistence on identity, difference, bifurcation of life in the two-systems of nature and culture, the dichotomy between primary and secondary qualities of being? … A Japanese botanist, Kumagusu Minakata wrote 'Things in the universe naturally proceed smoothly without being conscious until one apprehends the reasons for such things… A discovery is nothing but understanding things in the universe, as they are, through encountering tact.' This ability to modify what is perceptible enables us, if only for an instant, to cease being entirely human, entirely 'you,' or 'I.' It enables us to become a mold. Metamorphoses names the exercise of becoming 'tact,' of thinking life without hierarchies.” (Chus Martínez, curator of the exhbition).
