Huniti Goldox

Para Gardens


Para Gardens is a digital surface that is textured with different plants and matter collected and constructed in Leipzig and Amman. The artist duo Huniti Goldox invites the viewer into a meditative space that visualises the meshwork of different beings and their mutual attraction, while reflecting on the erotic aspect of our ecological existence. Being alive is an erotic process where the self is constantly transformed through its relationships with other organisms. There is the desire to be touched, to be connected, to be alive within the natural system. The disregard of those needs lie at the core of the global crisis and the engagement with the world as a dead mechanism controlled by economic efficiency.
The work is implemented as a virtual experience where people can scroll through with a cursor. As a surface “Para Gardens” translates matter’s desire to be in contact with another and asks: what do we give and what do we take within our inner and outer worlds?

Huniti Goldox is an artist duo consisting of Areej Huniti and Eliza Goldox. In their practice they are interested in geopolitical realities, marginalised oral histories and contextual research. They like to utilize new media tools, video art, conversations and writing. When working, they try to think of formats that can involve different voices and beings, be this human and nonhuman, such as workshops, excursions and interventions. This stems from the desire to create moments for collective imagining and re-imagining to collapse dominant narratives and fixed geographies. Their work got exhibited at Darat Al Funun, The MMAG Foundation & The Jordan National Gallery and Goethe Institute in Amman, SomoS Art House in Berlin, School Of Waters/ Biennale Mediterranea in San Marino, Sheffield Doc Fest, D21 in Leipzig and will be shown in Dream City in Tunis 2022.
