Organized by Quo Artis and TRA (Treviso Ricerca Arte), the event will consist of a morning of conversations and a multidisciplinary inquiry into the botanical life of Treviso, culminating in a group cartography of a garden in a private villa veneta. The event will be followed by appetizers and drinks.
In times of surging ecological crisis, how can we shift our perspective, embrace ethical complexity, and foster attunement to botanical entities that inhabit one’s biotope?
The first Dissemination Event of Roots & Seeds XXI, with an artist talk by Margherita Pevere, will take place in Treviso on the 28th of May, 2022.
During a week-long residency in the garden in Treviso, artist Margherita Pevere will collaborate with various Roots & Seeds XXI partners and guests working in the fields of art, botany and transdisciplinary research through walks, conversations, daily rituals, and conversations. This will focus on the local flora as a point of departure to reflect on biodiversity, environmental death and anthropogenic ecological changes.
The residency is part of the artist’s wider research project, Unframing Death, an investigation into death from more-than-human and queer perspectives and an invitation to reflect on the process of dying as a creative one, responding to the urgency of art in times of environmental disruption and the ecological effects of human action.
The residency will culminate in two Dissemination Events of Roots & Seeds XXI, taking place in Bologna in the framework of the Festival Resilienze (more information) and a Garden Cartography in Treviso (event at complete capacity).
