While scientists tend to categorize their objects of study in order to verify some pre-prepared hypotheses, visual artist Oliver Thie is focused on the individual within the species or class of things. In this episode we dive into two of Oliver’s solo exhibitions: ‘The truth about the origin of the world’ (2020) where he worked with an 18th century stone collection from the Siebengebirge in Germany and ‘Mapping the Invisible’ where Oliver explores a microscopic Hawaiian cave-dwelling cicada by enlarging it into a wall-sized drawing. In times of Anthropocentric landscapes and rapidly increasing insect extinction, his work is a persistent act of documentation that brings to life unseen microcosms and the beauty within the individuality of things.
