Šopa Gallery / Košice Artist in Residence, Hlavná 40, Košice 20.06.2024 17.00

We invite you to become part of a new chapter of the long-term botanical sci-fi project Wild Garden Utopia, created by the Hungarian artistic duo Kitti Gosztola and Bence György Pálinkás.

Through a series of workshops, we imagine a future where Japanese knotweed, a so-called invasive alien species, is the only plant in Europe, and the few remaining humans represented by the participants have no choice but to find harmony with nature and redefine themself as a community through rituals, sound making and empathizing with the plant. 

For our community/ritual building we invite participants to make cords and ropes from Japanese knotweed, meanwhile we share our visions of and fears about the future, also what can divide and bond us as a community of plants, animals, fungi, humans, and bacteria.

If you are interested, you can sign up by email: monika.padejova@kair.sk.

The event will be in English.

Workshop is FREE
