more about the species

I will explain more about our collaborative project “introducing new species”

It is an ongoing collaborative project between me, Milo Tchais and Rapha Franco. The work is taking place in a derelict building in SW6, London.

The idea is to explore the artistic and biological possibilities of the site, adding new plants to the soil and combining this action with spray-painting on the wall. We intend to entroduce new life and new possibilities of art and critical though to this environment.

The building has been empty for many years and there is a wide range of weeds growing there, as well as countless graffiti-artists that visit and visited the place throughout the years… We are planting new plants species (few types of ivies and mixed flower seeds) to the site and combining their growth process with forest-like paintings (by Milo).

My work has to do with the documentation of the process by film and photos. As is a long project, directly related to the time the plants take to grow, it needs a good documentation. I’ve posted already the video I’ve done from the first visit we’ve done, and I am currently working in the next one.

This series of photographs are from Rapha Franco, he does this kind of series work, with different locations in which he is working on.
