For N U R T U RÆL, THE AGENCY develops the performative installation SOLASTALGIA, in which the dryness of the desert forms the background for a farewell ceremony: between consolation (sōlācium) and -algia (pain, suffering, grief), solastalgia describes the feeling of losing one's living space due to global warming.
In SOLASTALGIATHE AGENCY creates a space of farewell to the centrality of the human species in an ecosystem that never belonged to us in the first place.
