Moving Plants

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportAntologiForskning

Plants move, they move other things, they move people, and they are themselves being moved around. We often treat plants as a mere backdrop for human activity and existence, yet, as we become still more acutely aware of the dire ecological state of our planet, artists and scholars across the world are increasingly insisting that plants are amongst our most important earthly co-inhabitants if we are to thrive and survive in a climatically changing world. As an exhibition, Moving Plants showcases art practices from across the world regions of East Asia and Europe that all centre, one way or another, on plants as a focal point for making local and global connections between aesthetic engagements with contemporary ecological issues and practices of concern.
This book is a companion piece to the namesake art exhibition, bringing together the exhibited artists with scholars centrally invested in similar plant-related matters. As such, it is not exactly an exhibition catalogue in the conventional notion of the genre, but rather a reflection book in which scholars from various disciplines think with and through core themes and issues resonating with the matters put forth and explored by the artists in the exhibition.
