the Mycological Twist

The Mycological Twist is a project by Eloïse Bonneviot and Anne de Boer operating both as a fixed mushroom garden and as a nomadic project, infecting and spreading mycelium alike. Since 2018 the garden is located in Athis-Mons, a suburb of Paris. The projects initiated by the Mycological Twist can be seen as a place to investigate the cycle of deterioration and regeneration happening in zones of Dark Ecology.

Coined by Paul Stamets, the Mycological Twist looks at its capacity of inserting itself as a permacultural extension to an exhibition space. The underlying structure of the program is following patterns and behavior that can be seen in the process of the garden, and follows moments of inoculation, growth and harvest as key elements for events to happen.

The Mycological Twist started in 2014 as an extension to Jupiter Woods’ garden, a gallery located in South Bermondsey, London. Since then, the materialization of the research results in a program of commissioned works, lectures, performances and works.
