Emmy Lingscheit’s work explores ideas of environmental change and geopolitical upheaval, and investigates the ambiguities and exchanges between organisms and non-organisms, and between humans and non-humans. These seemingly rigid categories become increasingly blurry as technological advances take us further into a postnatural domain, and scientific research continues to reveal surprising insights into the world we think we know. Lingscheit’s prints and sculptural works explore the myriad ways in which we are enmeshed with the non-human, from the cellular level to the global economy, and their implications for the ecological and climatic challenges we collectively face. Her work critiques entrenched systems and attitudes that contribute to environmental damage, amplifying social and economic inequality in the process. She invites us to consider the idea and aesthetics of salvaging hope, shelter, and community out of repression, division, and environmental catastrophe.
