Zina Swanson: For Vivian
28 Sep 2019 – 02 Feb 2020
Vivian Wiley can communicate with plants, perhaps we all can.
In 1973, a book called The Secret Life of Plants described experiments showing how plants respond to humans and experience feelings, such as pain or fear, maybe even love. Drawing on the psychology of plants and theories of plant perception, Zina Swanson presents a body of work For Vivian, a window into the world of plant paranormal and our reciprocal relationships with nature.
