(Re)Thinking Invasive Alien Species 2014

Agus Tri Budiarto, Cindy Lin and Lintang Radittya

Bringing Sewon FoodLab to a gallery, “(Re)Thinking Invasive Alien Species” examines our relationships with Singapore’s evolving landscapes, reflecting on what Richard Schweder mentions as “intentional worlds” where “environmentally situated agents” locate themselves as “organisms within systems of ecological relations, and as persons within systems of social relations”. This project wishes to not only trace the introductions and establishments of invasive alien species, but also to probe the varied human definitions of nativity and non-nativity. To problematize the division between non-human and human, native and non-native, this experimental project involving biology, sound and consumables delves into the contestation of the Other, the Alien.
