Mafavuke’s Trial and Other Plant Stories | The Showroom, London

The Showroom presents a major new commission by London-based artist Uriel Orlow, which explores the botanical world as a stage for politics at large through film, photography, installation and sound.

With additional works by Subtle Agency, David Goldblatt, Kapwani Kiwanga, Cedric Nunn, Cooking Sections and Philippe Zourgane.

Working from the dual vantage points of South Africa and Europe, the project considers plants as both witnesses and actors in history, and as dynamic agents – linking nature and humans, rural and cosmopolitan medicine, tradition and modernity – across different geographies, histories and systems of knowledge, with a variety of curative, spiritual and economic powers.
