A show curated by  Rachel de Joode, Zoë Claire Miller and Michaela Richter about distance, appropriation, arrangement, interaction, simulation, stereotypes and performance in the art and plant worlds—in intimate dialog with the botanical and architectural exhibits of the Volkspark Blankenfelde-Pankow.
Sculptures can be seen as agents that create and reflect environments, much like architectural settings—“The Analogy between Bulbs and Buds” brings together these two spheres, in which the potential of building worlds is demonstrated: contemporary art production, and the “natural” environment of Botanischer Volkspark, shaped by its eventful history. Both shine a newish light on each other—an experiment that addresses the search for prototypical scenarios and their possibilities to illustrate and question orders, settings, and corresponding conditions.
The Analogy between Bulbs and Buds‘ features works by Ayami Awazuhara, Kasia Fudakowski, Rike Horb., Tilman Hornig, Florian Japp, Rachel de Joode, Hanne Lippard, Zoë Claire Miller, Ulrike Mohr, Alona Rodeh, Aurora Sander & Santiago Taccetti.
