The exhibition Life of Plants focuses on our relationship with plants. Although plants create life for all organisms the provide us with oxygen, food, medicine, clothes, energy and colour) we have little regard for them. We suffer from plant blindness. We see them only as means for decoration and consumption and have no eye for their way of living. And that is a problem if we want to survive the climate crisis. We need plants more than ever. Artists and scientists can open our eyes to plants and their unique qualities. In Life of Plants artists Arja Hop and Peter Svenson, Elspeth Diederix, Špela Petrič and Oscar Santillán present their perspectives on plant life.
