Salaxis I

Join us from April 22nd to 25th at VOX-POP Amsterdam for an insightful exhibition Salaxis I, showcasing the collaborative efforts between students of the Textile and Architectural Design programs at Gerrit Rietveld Academie and Müge Yılmaz. Over the past months, students have delved into the intricate realm of speculative research, exploring the critical impacts of sea levels rising and salinisation of soil under Müge Yılmaz’s guidance.


Through engaging in monthly activities such as field trips, workshops, and material research, students have developed a series of drawings and prints centered around their world building exercises of a fictional island called Salaxis. Müge’s lecture at the outset of this research journey shed light on innovative proposals to environmental challenges posed by rising sea levels and ground subsidence. From cultivating salt-tolerant crops to exploring the speculative potential of salty water in a futuristic and science fiction based context the exhibition offers unexpected perspectives on our relationship with the changing environment.
