In this installation Thomas Zipp thematizes his long-time interest in the research in the area of psychophysics, specifically in the relationship of man to plants. The exhibition transform human (life) cycles to basic elements such as feeding; plants as eatable form, instrument as entertainment. The gallery space is transformed into a laboratory, where the artist and his colleagues present performances; they play music – and hope that they influence the plants; if not the plants, then in any case the observers. In the interview Zdenek Felix talks about the background of Thomas Zipp’s project and the installation on display. Thomas Zipp talks in detail about the specially produced new works. The show runs until January 18, 2014.
