The artist’s latest nature installation, curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, takes over the vaulted interiors of an artificial mountainscape. As with their previous exhibitions at the 2022 Venice Biennale and Sant’Andrea de Scaphis, Okomoyon unleashes the might of nature in the face of mankind, this time in response to Russian composer Alexander Scriabin’s unfinished composition Mysterium. And although animatronic bears and live butterflies have played roles in their past shows, this one incorporates a chimeric, animatronic lamb in a nod to both the title and writer Anne Boyer’s essay of the same name.
