Nicholas Mangan at NTU Centre for Contemporary Art, Singapore

Nicholas Mangan is included in The Posthuman City, a group exhibition that considers the possibilities of a conscious sharing of resources, and a respectful and mindful coexistence between humans and other species. Through its varied artistic propositions, The Posthuman City intends to open a discussion about the imbalanced relationship between an anthropocentric thinking that puts the human at the centre, and the fact that the urban environment is a habitat for many life forms.

Nicholas Mangan at PICA

Termite Economies is an ongoing project centred on the CSIRO’s relatively recent proposition to exploit the natural behaviour of termites to facilitate resource extraction. Ruminating on the notion of capitalism putting nature to work, Mangan has built an allegorical framework in which termites embody the dynamics of human social and economic activity.
