Nectere, a Latin verb meaning ‘to attach, bind, connect’, is a group show exploring points of intersection present in the artists' practices. The works consider relationships and states of being within interconnected organic and non-organic systems. This presentation is the culmination of a year-long residency at Acme’s Warton House studio building.


Sabīne Šnē is interested in the interconnection between humans, non-humans and nature.  By exploring different organisms inhabiting soil and their role in sustaining life, the mixed media installation Terrain We Traverse questions the value we place on beings who are not humans and recognises the intimacy of the non-human within us.
