in collaboration with
Patricia Coates shared a survey of her work together with recent field-study: the flora and fauna in Berlin. The artist explained how the idea of creating from seed became integral to her practise in this time when crops and seeds nurtured over millennia are being patented by global conglomerates; when land use is not decided by working individuals but by omnipotent corporate entities. Patricia revealed the role of her alter-ego, Lucy Palustris, as a force against patriarchy and a world dominated by big business and empowered by governments directed by immediate, extractive, and short-term gain. An engaging lecture and conversation followed a delicious organic dinner.
