How to Make a Coconut Shell into Everything // Jesus Canuto Iglesias, Martin Gabriel & Beng Yuenyong x Leonor Faber-Jonker
In this third podcast of the TR/X/E TALKS series you are introduced to the exhibition How to Make a Coconut Shell into Everything that took place in November 2021 at TR/X/E in The Hague.
The exhibition presented sculptural works that use technology as a tool and a language to depict what’s beyond – from metaphysical ideas to social taboos with the playful recognizable tone of the church of our contemporary industry. Four months after their group exhibition the three artists Martin Gabriel (Czech *1991), Jesus Canuto Iglesias (Spain *1992) and Beng Yuenyong (Thailand *1987) come back to TR/X/E to reflect on it together with writer and artist Leonor Faber-Jonker. From their DIY use of technology the conversation moves along topics such as the Buddhism of shopping malls, indifferent algorithms and the search for meaning, consequently asking: What can things be because of technology?
