Event description


Alex Last and Contemporary Art Tasmania invite you to participate in a rehearsal of sensory experience, visualisation, and dialogue that delves into ecological entanglement.

In this globalised world, living on stolen country, what does it mean to put down roots? If we commit to this landscape, what alternate ways of sensing and processing the world might help us build a more regenerative lutruwita?  

Tickets are for a rehearsal led by Alex Last, where participants will become responsible for, and familiar with, an Agapanthus plant. Misunderstood and often reviled, its name in English is derived from the Greek: agapē, meaning “love” and anthos, meaning "flower.” In order to grow both outward and inward, participants will become-other; rehearsing a relation with these uprooted vegetal beings to better comprehend their own mineral entanglements, energetic dependencies and ecological possibilities.
