The new site-specific exhibition continues and expands Jila Svicevic’s installation work “Tuliuss” (2021), which is created for reflecting to the environment by mimicking the bioluminescence of the glowworm/”Tuliuss”.

Tuliuss is the journey that reflect to the environment and its history through its installations that glow in dark. The objects create new narratives that link to the ideas related to the importance of taking time and effort to better understand and reconnect with our biosphere.

The new objects hidden on Mohni island will be present as physical objects as well as mapped online and tokenized as eco-friendly NFTs. This way transferring biospheric data between physical, web2 and web3 networks for its sustainability.

The hybrid placement is also a form of adaptation where site specific knowledge turns into new symbols that are simultaneously present in different ecosystems.

The event will only happen when it’s not too windy to ride the ferry. All events are in the open air – please choose your clothing wisely! We recommend to wear rubber boots as some spots can be rather wet. During the events the performer and the audience are open to constantly changing weather and living environment. As such the experience of the events can also change accordingly. We recommend to tune yourself during these performances moreover as being in the body of a curious beetle sitting on a leaf nearby – open to the elements, attentive to the environment and still enjoying the constant pulse of biosphere.
