Up on the hill, Mobarak presents two related bodies of work. The six SPHERE STUDIES are part of her ongoing examination of the material and metaphoric possibilities of mycelium. Growing through a substrate in a rhizomatic system of hyphae, mycelium has its own kind of intelligence, one that opens the possibility of personal relationship. As a material it is versatile and malleable; only for those who understand it, however, will it work, assuming the ternary role of material, subject and studio assistant.

Then there is a five-channel sound installation emanating from the bowels of the earth. SUBTERRANEAN BOUNCE is built from recordings of the movements of spheres of various sizes and densities.


Key themes include:

Intersensory deferral / displacement

Hybridity

Michael Crichton

Trip to Petra

The sound of form and the form of sound

Kill your studio assistants

Family history / daddy issues
