Marginal Utility is proud to present forever wild (nest machine), an exhibition of a new project by the New York based artist Douglas Repetto.

Preemptive nostalgia for wilderness and creatures lost. 
A run down workshop on a generation ship or a boutique factory making knick knacks for terraformed lands. 
What will we fill our wild places with when wild things are gone?

“forever wild (nest machine)” is the first in a series of speculative machines that generate artifacts no longer produced by natural processes. It is an inefficient factory built from scraps and debris, making elaborate nests for forgotten creatures.

The exhibition runs from December 7th – January 20th. An opening reception will be held on December 7th from 6pm – 11pm.
