Plants who had a career - Elzbieta Szota & the plants

Installation with plants, sound piece

Timid, ordinary plants having their first show. 

Why? Because nowadays everybody has the right to make a career.

We, humans, like surrounding ourselves with plants. We look at them, eat them, wear them, live in them, decorate and paint them, intoxicate and heal ourselves with them. Lastly thanks to them we can breath. On this planet they appeared before us, they witnessed rise of the first humans, and now they are silently watching modern Homo sapiens. Plants are also our rival and quiet companion. They have been silent for over 450 million years. Now they must have a lot to tell us.
