In dialogue, the works of Philippe Hyojung Kim and Birthe Piontek underscore the essential impermanence of our existence through a subversion of the traditional still life. Piontek tells us the nature of the organic is transformation. The disintegration of our nourishment acts as a gentle reminder of our own make-up: flesh will turn to dust. While Kim serves us plastic, prepared to outlast the dinner and the diner. Seemingly, meaningful change may only occur alongside temporality. In this moment of shared instability, we are offered the choice to embrace a state of flux. It’s here we find our humanity.
