The exhibition “From the shore to the Mudpool” is addressed to all genders and identities. The show is inspired by how artists and gays cruised and made art in the abandoned Waterfront Piers in New-York City in the 70s-80s. Cruising was and is still mainly a gay male practice, in this show we use it as a departure point, a tool for reclaiming space and dreaming of other ways of being in the world together.
In dialogue with the artworks and the space, we invite the visitor to cruise and wander different paths of desires and worlds of queer ecology.

About CAVE
In 2014 I started the project CAVE3000 in Berlin. CAVE3000 was an exhibition project hosted in my apartment in Neukölln. The name was inspired by the iconic dark room club in the neighborhood as well as the ’cave’, the origin of projections and artist’s expression. The name refers to something ancient and at the same time the 3000 is a clear hint to the unknown future we are all heading to together. It has since its beginning hosted several exhibitions and collaborations. CAVE is hibernating in Sweden and is waiting to be rebirthed as CAVE in a distant future unknown.

CAVE3000 opened as a project space in Berlin Neukölln in Natasja Loutchko´s studio/apartment in 2014. In March 2020 Lennartsson’s, An udder kiss ended the irregular shows at the apartment in Neukölln.

CaveInCloud was a collaboration with JUL ZABOWSKX an online Virtual Reality CAVE3000 unity game you can play on your computer. It is a mashup of weird, fragmented documentation of some projects hosted in the cave.
