Using photography, video, installation, and texts, Annie Ratti questions and rethinks contemporary human conflicts, uncertainties and social complexities, often transforming her private experience into a public or participatory event. Such is the case with her research into the science, cultivation, and cultural and ethnographic significance of psilocybin mushrooms, the results of which appeared as an exhibition at De Vleeshal, Middelburg in 2013. With source documents, photographs and installation views and step-by-step instructions on how to grow psychedelic fungi, Ratti encapsulates the Western fascination with these rhizomatic organisms.
