Yiying Wu & Aoi Yoshizawa
28.07 - 2.08.2014
Participatory art project ‘Plant Hotel’ provides a platform where people can check in their plants when they are away, and people can visit and take care of them when they are around. It takes a form of collaborative service.
The work follows the artistic mode of ‘relational aesthetics’ that creates a social setting to explore new social relations and interactions. The artistic aesthetic is embedded in the participation and social interactions.
The pilot opening of Plant Hotel is at 10am - 8pm, 28.07 - 2.08. 2014.
Opening: July 28th, 17:00 hours. Welcome!
Yinying Wu & Aoi Yoshizwa's next services, ‘Cafe’ and ‘Washing Tub’, will come soon.
