Zheng Bo 郑波
What roles did plants play in modern Chinese politics? How should we work with plants to reinvent politics so we can move beyond the Anthropocene? I have been investigating these questions in my practice over the past five years, through a series of artworks realized as plant-based installations, ecosexual films, and public workshops. I will present a few artworks and share a few ideas.
