Agar Olfactory Damp Perfume
damp is a gentle whisper of a musty room in the middle of a forest. it's the breath of the earth as wet soil as it restores itself from climate catastrophe. this scent is part of a project in speculative olfaction. it imagines climate disaster and apocalyptic scenarios and the type of smell landscapes that would exist in them.
agustine zegers is a Chilean artist, writer, and bacterial community dedicated to the worlds of olfaction and sympoiesis. Their work uses text, olfaction, and ritual in an attempt to comprehend and commune with flows of ecological collapse as well to question the pervasive systems that produce them. Their work has been exhibited and published internationally at venues such as the Venice Biennale, Sharjah Art Foundation, the Institute of Queer Ecology, Genderfail Press, and DIS Magazine.
