NEW ON OUR SHELVES The art duo 431art demonstrates how contemporary art can interact with society. Their conceptual works take on a variety of forms including multimedia installation, public intervention, performance, and photography. As the makers of personified plants, 431art has now created a first with their botanoadopt® and Pflanzenklappe®. Of the approximately 1,000 plants they’ve placed with adoptive parents over the course of their prize-winning project, 100 of them present a world in which plant life is seen in a new way. Jade Plant “Lehman,” Succulent “Emily Sensorship,” and Orchid “Technical Influence” are three of the 100 plant personalities wittily and poetically set in scene in photographic portraits together with their unique life stories. Urban Plants – Bio-Biographies is a book on the fate of city-dwelling potted plants that makes an artistic case for a new way to see vegetative life. The illustrated volume with photographs of indoor plants and short texts by Christoph Wilhelm Aigner, Dana Giesecke, Christian Kaufmann, and Sue Spaid offers insight into the unique destinies of urban plants.
