Plants

As scientific research demystifies the complex world of plants, we are gradually opening up to their sensitivity, intelligence and agentivity. More than ever interdisciplinary, this feature draws its references from the fields of science, anthropology and botany. Inevitably, environmental concerns and the impact of human intervention on plant biodiversity figure prominently, while the works suggest different ways of communicating with nature, taking a closer look at the non-individualistic behavior of plants. Generally invited for what they are, but also sometimes for the metaphors they evoke, the plants that appear in these pages sometimes evoke human exploitation and domination, or the collapse of ecosystems - but sometimes also, in a more optimistic way, resistance, solidarity, collaboration and hope for renewal.

New New Age

Over the last few years, the occult has made a stunning comeback in art, manifested through a re-appropriation of esoterism, a holistic and beneficial approach, and a desire for social and ecological justice. The works in the portfolio New New Age stand out for their powerful intention to re-enchant the world, recognize the agency of matter, and campaign against the destruction of Earth and for all living things, by exploring what is luminous and performative in this philosophy and its rituals.
