Exhibition pays homage to the resilience of the humble mushroom
Moral Turgeman: Rooted Signals exhibition view at Praz-Delavallade Projects in Los Angeles.

LOS ANGELES, CA.- Praz-Delavallade Projects Los Angeles is presenting Rooted Signals, an exhibition that pays homage to the resilience of the humble mushroom and its vast mycelial networks connecting individual plants at the root by the Los Angeles-based multidisciplinary artist Moral Turgeman.

Considered the most intelligent of simple multicellular organisms, this porous fungal structure ensures individual plants across vast areas receive the nutrients they need to survive, through a complex and still little understood communication system. Turgeman brings this vital and decentralized structure of collective intelligence to Rooted Signals, conceptualizing the mycelium process of sending chemical signals across its generative, skeletal, and binding branches of tubular threads—called hyphae—to the human experience.

The immersive exhibition of sound and sculpture evokes emotion and triggers memories through its own intricate ecology, where audioscape compositions synchronize with vibrations emitted from a single lounger surrounded by series of radiant mushroom sculptures. Attendees are invited to sit in the space, in the company of these symbolic representations of growth, transformation, and the profound relationship between humans and the natural world, while their effects are felt in the body, not by ingesting them, but by means of the frequencies and vibrations emitted from the central seat.

A conduit for the growth, adaptability, and symbiosis of this incredible mycorrhizal network, Turgeman’s tactile sound and sight experience brings willing participants into a meditative space for contemplation, where their thoughts, emotions, and physical responses foster self-awareness and introspection. Rooted Signals blurs the boundary between the natural and technological, the body and its environment. It explores the immense interconnectedness of all things, and calls for harmonious coexistence in a place where the sound emanating from living organisms forges a tangible connection between the organic and the artificial.

Moral Turgeman is a multidisciplinary, international artist. Born in Tel Aviv, forged in the United States, and commissioned around the globe, Turgeman has also been cultivating her namesake studio, Raise the Moral, in the heart of Los Angeles. Her approach is rooted in an intuitive, sensorial appreciation for the enigmatic relationship between form, subject, and site, with her art often being a conduit for self-discovery by inspiring wonder and awe.

Turgeman connects with audiences across a broad spectrum of interactive works— from redesigned homes and multisensory experiences to bespoke design objects and installations. Her ongoing Blind Portrait experience has been brought to over 40 cities to date, with thousands of personal portraits drawn, and she has disrupted unique architectural settings from the Black Sea to Topanga Canyon. Turgeman’s studio, Raise The Moral, consults on a wide range of ideas, currently fabricating and developing small furniture and bespoke objects that operate as both functional and interactive art pieces.
