The Creeping Garden returns to London at Diaspore
The 22nd November sees The Creeping Garden return to London for a special screening at Diaspore, Bermondsey
The event is free but booking is essential.
Diaspore aims to offer an exhibition and participatory programme focusing around ideas of ecology(ies) looking at ecosystems and their communities. Explored through various forms and tailored to answer a range of problematics reflecting societal constructs. The project involves scientists, designers, artists, writers, chefs and community groups whom together discuss and think on how to interact with a manufactured environment.
Friche Broadcasts is a curatorial programme evolving around plant communication. Taking as a starting point 6 ways of commucation used by plants we will explore how they can translate to social models and community groups. The 6 modules will consecutively look at communication through Mycelium, Hearing, Nervous system, Electric field, Airborne and Genetic transfer. Each module will last for two months and will consist of an exhibition, workshops, group discussion, meals, publication, talks, and other type of collective and community lead activities.
Friche is an as art and design Studio working towards the conception of eco-structures for urban communities. Our philosophy is to intervene in spaces with the potential for transformation, working within existing parameters to create a new epicenter for the community; this new platform can then be used as an educational, recreational and discursive environment.
