Jane Finlay, 'Further Closer'

'Further Closer' is a personal narrative reflecting on human impact, loss, change and the poetics of anthropomorphism. The work considers the complexities of anthropomorphic tendencies inherent in human thinking, and offers a playful exploration of human proximity to nonhumans. What sets humans apart from nonhumans? Genetic mapping indicates that we share the same DNA as many other organisms yet the resilience of anthropocentric thinking persists. This constructed divide between humans and nonhumans is impossible to map as a single line, but rather the ‘space’ between these two points exists in realm of the imagination, of fiction and poetry, of the abject and aberrant.
Jacobus Capone, 'Sincerity and Symbiosis'

'Sincerity and Symbiosis' is considered act 2 in the context of a large ongoing project titled 'Forewarning', instigated by Jacobus in 2018. Accumulatively the project operates as a series of reconciliations and farewells unfolding within specific environments that have become inherently fragile through time and human undoing, and consequently have both a real and imbued hostility. Manifesting as a multichannel video installation act 2 documents parts of a 6-week durational performance undertaken within an undisclosed plantation forest in Shiga prefecture, Japan in early 2019. The ritualised engagement that unfolds in the videos exudes a reflective yet redemptive tone, foregrounding both the rift and intertwinement between human and nature.
