aLifveforms
(fed and cared for by JP Raether)

JP Raether’s transdisciplinary performative work attends to a group of constructed and constantly evolving identities. These aLifveforms are composed of language, technological skins, digital devices, and Raether’s fleshly body, which they embrace and from whose identity they simultaneously continue to detach themselves more and more. The SelfSisters, or AlterIdentities, are site-specific, colorful beings interwoven with everyday objects, whose works address the constitution of reality through language.

 

Currently, three active lines are “alive”, dedicated to topics such as reproductive and biotechnologies (Transformella), globalized tourism (Schwarmwesen) or occult substances of contemporary technology (Protektorama). The reproductive lifeline Transformella malor visits each of the 468 “Ikealities” around the world – the local store of the global furniture chain. In the course of her algorhythmic ritual, which is set to last for decades, she has already appeared in Berlin, Bergen, Warsaw, Hamburg and Düsseldorf, among other places.

 

On 18th of May 2024, she will take Shedhalle visitors on a journey to Ikeality in Dietlikon.
