Grow Up Grow Up is a programme of exhibitions, offering a cross-section of views on the movement of plants around the world. Cradle of biodiversity and environmental tensions, the twenty or so artists are based in South America, Central America and Taiwan.
Each focus highlights the relationship between plants and humans, exploring the local relationships of a territory but also international ones. This geographical scale cuts across political, social and environmental narratives and issues, as well as post-colonial issues. From the Amazon, to Costa Rica, to Taiwan, the projects cross master plants, shamanism, drugs but also the sensitive exploration of a territory.
This relation to plants is central, they are sacred and at the heart of local cultures and beliefs, Grow up wishes to cultivate and increase awareness of our relationship with living things. Fotohaus is invited to extend this programme with Nature et Société.
