The Museum of the Plant

The Museum of the Plant is a curiosity cabinet of photographs and objects addressing different aspects of plants. Regular institutions concerning plants and plant science usually restrict themselves to biological aspects and particularities of plants. They show rare species , collect DNA and aim to educate the public. This (fictitious and absurd) museum points to everything else. It focuses on coincidence rather than certainty, on the plants place in human society rather than their own habitats and on the transformation of natural objects into museum objects.
It is about flowerist arrangements, things that look like plants, plants of famous people, their colour, the holes in their leafs and how to fit a cactus in a herbarium.
