Plants can sometimes be thought of as a harmless or banal theme
in the artistic world. It does not have to be so. Quite the contrary!
The plants in this exhibition have much to tell, for example of our need to prune, tame, harvest, to relish them and categorise them.
This exhibition displays well-organised flora which hide themselves within decorative patterns, industrialised and massproduced pot plants which live their lives as amenable interior design details and plants which break boundaries and challenge the well-known and comfortable.
The seven artists who make this exhibition possible have all contributed with their own personal impressions. They work from different perspectives concerning the plants’ meaning for our environment and well-being as well as how we affect and form them so that they fulfil our requirements and fit into our lives.
