365 Plants - SOLO
06.11.2021

The exhibition 365 PLANTS is open! Hartwig Art Foundation and Casco Art Institute present a large white wall that cuts through the space: fragile paper plants seem to float around it. The two sides of the wall, each representing half a year, clearly differ. With every new day the expression of the plants grew. 365 PLANTS is the outcome of a year-long collection of intricate, almost extraterrestrial plants that Marielle Videler created not by looking or thinking of a plant, but by using small scissors and black ink to slowly sense the plant. Exhibition 365 PLANTS is open till 19 december 2021.
