The exhibition «There's No Such Thing as Solid Ground» tells of emotional intelligence, circular time and the visualization of healing. The complex, ever-changing relationship between humans, land and the structures of repair and care is a central theme of Otobong Nkanga's exhibition at Gropius Bau in Berlin. Her work, which deals with global exploitative extraction processes, takes a poetic and at the same time critical look at the reciprocal relationship between humans, flora and fauna and natural resources, especially minerals.
