The Mycological Twist is a project by Anne de Boer and Eloïse Bonneviot developed in 2014 in Jupiter Woods’ garden, a gallery located in South Bermondsey, London. It operates as a space functioning both as an extension of Jupiter Woods’ exhibition space, and as a place to investigate the cycle of deterioration and regeneration happening in zones of Dark Ecology.
Coined by Paul Stamets, the Mycological Twist looks at its capacity of inserting itself as a permacultural extension to the exhibition space. The underlying structure of the program is following patterns and behaviour that can be seen in the process of the garden, and follows moments of inoculation, growth and harvest as key elements for events to happen.
The materialization of the research results in a program of commissioned works, lectures, performances and works. The project travels and collaborates with spaces and organisations beyond the native ground of Jupiter Woods’ garden.
