Back in 2013 Sara Martin Mazorra and I created concrete - symbiosis. A series of brainy planters made of concrete.
In some of these brains, we, quite brutally, punched holes that could hold succulents. There was a dissected brain, a tiny cave, where plants could grow from. And then there was simply half a brain, with its small cracks and caverns, perfect for a beautiful furry coat of moss. We became moss-obsessed, we immersed ourselves in a world of moss, trying to understand it. Finding it, growing it, nurturing it...
Wrote a column about how all good things take their natural time reflecting on the concrete - symbiosis process. It’s part of the latest (printed) version of Art By Nature Magazine. A collaboration with the Flower Art Museum on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Human Nature’ 20th of November 2022 - 29th of Januari 2023.
Our mossy brains found a new shadowy, moisty residency to gather moss in peace. You can visit them there during opening hours at the garden of the Flower Art Museum in Aalsmeer.
