Dries Segers photographed all tangible fungi organisms in Dudenparc Brussels. Fungi are the oldest living species on our planet. They build and spread their communities across human borders continents laws … They take over land without asking permission. They clean up toxic messes in disturbed landscapes and shake the land back to life to create livable grounds for animals plants and maybe humans. They have the power to transport energy between weaker and stronger trees to keep forests alive or to kill them. Their spores are invisible and spread and spread and spread.
“The uncontrolled lives of mushrooms are a gift — and a guide — when the controlled world we thought we had fails.” — Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing
rile* is a bookshop and project space for publication and performance. rile* is into poetry, theory, choreography, artist writing and various other text based experiments. rile* organizes performances, meetings, launches, readings... rile* is the base word for silence in Láadan, a feminist constructed language developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter language's limitations to those who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
Our bookshop is open on Wednesday and Thursday from 11h to 17h, and from Friday to Sunday from 11h to 19h.
If you are interested to stock with us, get in touch, we are open for conversation and new friendships.
