About the event

The exhibition, “Growing Gills” is conceived by artists Joana Escoval (Portugal) and Gaia Fugazza (Italy), writer Agnieszka Gratza (UK/Poland), curator Daria Khan (Russia) and photographer Giovanna Silva (Italy).

"Growing Gills" attempts to reconsider our understanding of human descent and to imagine an aquatic future. It explores, among other things the use of psychedelic plants in Mediterranean witchcraft, alchemical experiments with transmutation of metals, fictional accounts of journeys to the underworld, and volcanic swimming as a species of meditation and a way of courting danger.

Mimosa House is an independent project space in the heart of Mayfair focused on working with emerging practitioners. Developed by curator Daria Khan, Mimosa House supports artistic process and exchange delivering a public programme including four group exhibitions annually. The programme address self-initiated artists’ projects and collaborations especially from female and queer artists.
