Leo's work sits somewhere between participatory social art, workshop, happening and artistic research. His current practice uses fermentation as a metaphor and action, focusing primarily on resistance to hyper-productivity and the resulting burnout on a personal societal, and ecological scale. For this project, he collaborates with performance makers  Robert Steijn and Wannes Labath to explore plant agency in human evolution, the crisis we are in, and hopeful futures. Slowness, dialogue, collectivity, and ritual are modes that feature heavily within these constructed experiences.
