Plant Registers (A3)
To talk about trees is a project that reflects on the way we perceive our current relationship with nature and the environmental crisis. It is based on a line from Adrienne Rich’s poem What kind of times are these! which responds to Bertolt Brecht’s poem To those who follow in our wake, where she asks if talking about trees in dark times is not a crime because it implies silencing so much injustice. Some years later, Adrienne Rich answers that in order to listen it is necessary to talk about trees. The exhibition questions what we give value to and how this choice conditions our relationship with the environment, inviting us to rethink what we do not pay attention to. The exhibition consists of a publication displayed in the space that compiles texts from various sources, a series of records, photographs and an ephemeral installation of plant elements.
Drawing, understood as recording and capturing phenomena, is one of Sara’s main lines of work, and in the exhibition she presents a series of vegetable shadows based on the plants and cuttings with which she lived.
This indirect look, so subtle and poetic towards nature allows her to return the attention to the value of what often goes unnoticed.
