I am currently in residency at the Manuel Rivera-Ortiz Foundation, preparing for the Arles Photo Festival 2023, which will begin on July 3rd. The MRO Foundation is presenting "Grow Up" as part of the festival. The exhibition uses the metaphor of the global movement of plants to highlight the relationship between plants and humans, as well as to explore local and international relationships within regions. This residency is supported by the Centre Culturel de Taïwan à Paris and aims to expand on the project JTC (2012-2015), an image installation developed from street plant pot scenes in Taiwan.
Secondly, I would like to share an interview (FR, EN) conducted in March with the French organization Art of Change 21. Since its establishment in 2014, just prior to COP21 in Paris, Art of Change 21 has been dedicated to connecting contemporary art with major environmental issues, emphasizing the role of artists and creativity in the ecological transition. In this interview, I shared my practice related to nature/culture with founder Alice Audouin.
Lastly, the catalog of the Brazilian residency project Labverde, in which I participated last year, has been published. It features the work of participating artists from the 2022 edition and insightful articles by Emanuele Coccia and Camilla Palestra. You can download the digital version from here.
