PLANTS POETICS

Plants poetics is an art-education project, developed at Pilar i Joan Miró Foundation in Mallorca, focused on the relationships between body, nature, territory and art. Working as a laboratory, we combined the study of plants with poetry, body explorations and books creation, taking as reference the thoughts and works of the artist Joan Miró, as well as the knowledge, ideas and experiences of the participants. 

The project was developed during 6 sessions, over 2 weeks, in different spaces of the Miró Foundation, with a group of people from a Community Rehabilitation Unit: Virginia, Katy, Maitane, Xisca, Antonia, Felisa, Aurelia, Tony y Marga. 

 

Throughout the entire process, we explored forms, qualities, patterns, movements and relationships between living beings (mainly plants and human body) with the intention of expanding the daily and symbolic universes of each person into symbiotic images and textures. We used different artistic tools, such as collage, writing, drawing, drifting, natural stamping and the use of photocopy. And we worked with concepts like texture, register, accumulation, copy, book-object, map and installation. We also review art-works from Miró, and other artists like Verónica Gerber, Ulises Carrión and Thomas Hirschhorn.

All this explorations helped us to create an ecological archive, relating micro and macro scales, as well as personal and collective materials. Through the final edition and installation, we generated an environment full of forests, paths, seabeds, flowers, copies and plants that invited to different lectures and perspectives.
