Maria Thereza Alves : Seeds of Change: New York - A Botany Colonization
Feb 10-Mar 31
Maria Thereza Alves' Seeds of Change studies settler colonialism, slavery, global migration, and commodification through the lens of displaced plants in ballast -- the waste material historically used to balance sailing ships in maritime trade. Dumped in ports at the end of passages as the ships took on more freight, ballast often carried ''dormant'' seeds collected from its place of origin that remained in the soil for hundreds of years before germinating and growing. Vernissage : 10 fevrier.
