title_ Waiting – A Medicinal Garden for Ailing Plants

date_ 2010

exhibition_ Sydney Biennale 2010

description_ The work is a transparent mesh structure echoing both a botanical glasshouse and a museological scientific vitrine filled with plants (representing larger threatened environments) interconnected by scientific glass vessels. The medicinal cabinet/garden encloses various fluids and solids, creating a space of revival and resuscitation.

The work talks about environmental sustainability, fragility and loss of species. Based on scientific facts, the space amplifies and imagines invisible processes and psychological state of plants. We are confronted with their being and plight in which we are implicated.
