All was plant! All was joy!

This piece was developed during our residency at Pscheuench. This first video was exhibited at ‘Letting Objects Speak’, SET, London.

First of a triptych of short films that cast three extinct Polish plants as their central protagonists. Envisaged as a beyond-the-grave message from extinct to endangered plants for how to avoid a similar fate, the plants offer survival techniques against humans, such as growing hair to assimilate them. This video visually references the small shrines found on homes around Poland, encouraging the endangered plants to develop healing powers so that they may become revered as saints by humans.
