At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

Hundreds + Thousands (Multi-City): Virtual Nursery

Hundreds + Thousands (Multi-City): Virtual Nursery

Presented by Performance Space; Freespace, West Kowloon Cultural District Authority Hong Kong; and Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts
This Virtual Nursery is an exhibition of 100 digital artefacts co-created by plant-lovers and their plants from across the world. Created through the Hundreds + Thousands (Multi-City): Germination workshops, the Virtual Nursery presents what happens when hundreds of humans and plants come together to commune and collaborate under the guidance of artists Daniel Kok and Luke George. You’re invited to convene in the Virtual Nursery on each evening of Liveworks, where these artefacts will ‘sprout’ for 100 minutes per night.
Hundreds + Thousands (Multi-City) is a small art movement enlisting the participation of plants as collaborators, mediators and audience. Relating with plants from the basis of what they know (what do plants know?), Hundreds + Thousands rearranges the experience of the visual, the sensual and the sensible to catch a glimpse of a world where the human is not at the centre.
Connecting human and plant participants from Sydney, Perth, Hong Kong and across the world, Hundreds + Thousands (Multi-City) is a year-long social choreographic process. The process begins with this specially-conceived workshop and exhibition series, and culminates as live performance presentations in the 3 cities in 2022.
