The Traveling Plant

The Veridical Travel Around the World of A True Imaginary Plant
Le véridique voyage autour du monde d'une plante imaginaire

Table of contents:

The Veridical Travel Around The World of A True Imaginary Plant traces the voyage of a plant —real, artificial or fictitious— around the world, telling its own story, the stories of other plants and living creatures (other than human and humans) it encounters, of whom and what it meets.

It is the umbrella title for a series of new artworks and events taking place in different times and locations around the world under the direction of the diverse participating organisations and curators.

The Travel: Waypoints & Landmarks

Where do you start when you are a plant that wants to travel the world? Which carriers are you going to take? Which routes are you going to follow?

The Preparatory Logbook of the Traveling Plant

People were asked, in a caring hosting tradition, to tell the plant what it could expect to experience and to discover along its journey, what and whom (humans and other than humans) it may encounter. Browse the Preparatory Logbook of the Traveling Plant.
