Sound Fertilizer at Tiefgarage Galery, Cologne

without comments

Permacultural installation that utilizes sound, light and living plant. Sound  Fertilizer is developing further in Cologne gallery Tiefgarage at multicultural Ebertplatz, between 22. and 26. July 2018.

Zucchini plant is positioned at the middle of the gallery, among other works. It has been planted in the straw bale at Center for Creative Solution in Croatia and after few months transported with  car over the half borders to Cologne. Cucurbita L has no known origin, some coming from USA and some from India. Its multiculturality resembles every large EU city and especially Ebertplatz where it is situated. 

Lighted with the light of 4000K enables growth and flowerin, while two recycled mobile phones play sets of freequencies created especially for that plant.

Sound Fertilizer encourages plant to grow in healthy and stable conditions, inside the gallery, speaking on more levels about the anthropocentric culture that grows on both neo liberal capitalism or social state of liberal humanism, while neither of options are furthering away from unbalanced relationship of people as subject and plants as object.

This installation makes plant a subject, as sound is artistically produced and intended for a plant. Art. in this case, is for a plant.
