Event: Closing event of the exhibition

Title: Rooted Signals by Moral Turgeman

Gallery: Praz Delavallade Projects

Time: Thursday, August 17th from 5-7pm

We are pleased to share the incredible artwork by female artist Moral Turgeman and her first solo show Rooted Signals with Praz Delavallade Projects in LA . The exhibition pays homage to the resilience of the humble mushroom and its vast mycelial networks connecting individual plants at the root.

The Tel Aviv born, LA based, artist’s approach is rooted in an intuitive, sensorial appreciation for the enigmatic relationship between form, subject, and site, with her art often being a conduit for self-discovery by inspiring wonder and awe.

Rooted Signals blurs the boundary between the natural and technological, the body and its environment. It explores the immense interconnectedness of all things, and calls for harmonious coexistence.

Praz-Delavallade Projects Los Angeles is pleased to present Rooted Signals,
an exhibition that pays homage to the resilience of the humble mushroom and
its vast mycelial networks connecting individual plants at the root by the Los
Angeles-based multidisciplinary artist Moral Turgeman.

Considered the most intelligent of simple multicellular organisms, this porous
fungal structure ensures individual plants across vast areas receive the
nutrients they need to survive, through a complex and still little understood
communication system. Turgeman brings this vital and decentralized structure
of collective intelligence to Rooted Signals, conceptualizing the mycelium
process of sending chemical signals across its generative, skeletal, and
binding branches of tubular threads—called hyphae—to the human experience.

The immersive exhibition of sound and sculpture evokes emotion and triggers
memories through its own intricate ecology, where audioscape compositions
synchronize with vibrations emitted from a single lounger surrounded by series
of radiant mushroom sculptures. Attendees are invited to sit in the space, in
the company of these symbolic representations of growth, transformation,
and the profound relationship between humans and the natural world, while
their effects are felt in the body, not by ingesting them, but by means of the
frequencies and vibrations emitted from the central seat.

A conduit for the growth, adaptability, and symbiosis of this incredible
mycorrhizal network, Turgeman’s tactile sound and sight experience brings
willing participants into a meditative space for contemplation, where
their thoughts, emotions, and physical responses foster self-awareness
and introspection. Rooted Signals blurs the boundary between the natural
and technological, the body and its environment. It explores the immense
interconnectedness of all things, and calls for harmonious coexistence in a
place where the sound emanating from living organisms forges a tangible
connection between the organic and the artificial.
