Curator Lucia Pietroiusti shares her reflections on the intersections of art, more-than-human paradigms and environmental justice and balance through the recent projects: Sun & Sea by Rugilė Barzdžiukaitė, Vaiva Grainyte and Lina Lapelyte; Heavens by Revital Cohen & Tuur Van Balen and the climate-justice festival, Sensing the Planet.
Lucia Pietroiusti is a curator working at the intersection of art, ecology and systems, usually outside of the gallery format. She is the founder of the General Ecology project at Serpentine Galleries, London — a strategic, cross-organisational effort dedicated to the implementation of ecological principles throughout the Serpentine’s public-facing programmes, internal infrastructure, and networks. She is the curator of the second edition of POWER NIGHT at E-Werk Luckenwalde, titled Being Mothers, taking place in 2021/2022. Together with Filipa Ramos, Pietroiusti will be the curator of the 8th Biennale Gherdeïna: Persons Persone Personen, in May 2022. Also in 2022, Pietroiusti will join James Bridle in curating a part of the Helsinki Festival, dedicated to artificial and more-than-human intelligences. At Serpentine, Pietroiusti is currently Strategic Consultant for Ecology, and she was Curator of General Ecology from 2018–2021. She is also a co-curator of Back to Earth — Serpentine’s 50th anniversary programme, dedicated to the environment (ongoing), which invites more than sixty-five artists to devise environmental campaigns, prototypes or interventions in artwork form.
