Lithic Alliance

glaring tales

Lithic Alliance sees itself as a fluid compound of diverse constituents, that can solidify themselves in material form. Lithic Alliance was initiated in 2020 by artist Daniel V. Keller. They are working with the lithological realm and the energies and vibrations that emerge in this mineralized entanglement.

They are working with-and in various environments on often site-specific projects, multimedia installations, sounds and performances.

Their research digs into the ecological and geopolitical foundation of co-existence, animisms and the rights of nature resulting in multifaceted projects that investigates connections spanning over vast temporalities to identify phenomenological correspondence and queer kinship and seeks to manifest these enquiries through visual and performative methods.

Their works have been shown internationally including ICA London, Linnahall Talinn, Couronne Biel, STEMS Gallery Brussels, Art Safiental Biennale, Haus Konstruktiv and Gasträume Zürich.

Their work “glaring tales,” consists of five burned wooden chairs reminiscent of city ruins, along with root-shaped ceramic objects glazed with local ash. The piece is located at Nättepori. During the opening week, a sound art and poetry performance titled “Ashes as Tone is Whispering” was also presented at the site of the artwork.
