The Present State, Fri 24 Oct-Mon 27 Oct 8pm-late

Plant Gang

200 High St (access from 161 Manchester St)

Friday 24 October–Monday 27 October, 8pm-late

During the four nights of FESTA, the public could experience the current state of our re-growing city at Plant Gang’s contemplative installation. A vacant lot behind an empty building was filled with the recordings of foraging adventures throughout the city’s plant spaces.

This film of the suburban red zone opened up the unseen parts of the city up to the public, who were encouraged to take some time to consider and appreciate the spaces where plants grow. These normally go unnoticed ­– but the Plant Gang invited all to consider how plants can have a place within the city and its rebuild by projecting this quiet and thoughtful film onto a central city wall.
