Between Visible and Invisible Worlds presents eleven different mushroom characters: loners, lovers or large families like an army. So often we see just a small part of the whole. So much remains hidden, invisible. What we see of a mushroom is just the tip of the iceberg. The actual fungus, the mycelium, spreads underground in a huge network. In this forest, mushrooms are linked to their habitat. They live as objects that can be linked to bodies. Their mycelia embrace the wearer, becoming one with nature. One can even transform into a mushroom or interact with it by planting seeds. When invisible rhizomes become visible, the question arises; how comprehensive is the invisible network?
