collaborative work with Margaux Weiss branches of the Armenian blackberry, 2022 In our artistic work we negotiate processes of the so-called 'third nature' (Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing: Der Pilz am Ende der Welt. Matthes und Seitz Verlag) and proceed phenomenologically. For the time being, we are not interested in the distinction between nature and man, nor in the symbiosis between the two. We try to look at the concrete boundaries, which are visually and haptically present in our living world and often the intersections of humans, nature, and capitalist processes. The structures of proliferation in the city are forest, lichen, shore, mountain or cloud. They form a mélange, a hiding place, a castle, a reservoir, science fiction in a form that is equal parts utopian and dystopian. They point to the limits of our cultivation of roses and equally form a solution to our need of city. The great thing is that our plants don't conform ... they have thorns, spines and barbs. They burn, they scratch, they fight back, they belong locked up because they can clone themselves. They are outlawed, they are illegal they are fought with flamethrowers, they have started political wars and they are the harbingers of climate refugees. They form places that exclude humans and yet they can also be a beacon of hope for the future....
