Porin kulttuurisäätö is happy to invite you to revisit the exhibition Evergreen Inner Jungle in a form of video documentation and installation by Shubhangi Singh. The installation takes place 21.1.-30.1.2022 in Outo Olo at Vaasankatu 15.

Against the backdrop of Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden, The Fascination With Decay, Imagination and Mystery functions as an interlocutor between individuals, cultures and the setting that these actants operate within. In addition to the educational, conservational and medical values that are often attached to the present day botanical gardens, they also have equally been complicit in Economic Botany that links scientific knowledges to anthropology and the colonial powers that have exploited and commodified botanical studies to advance commercial and imperialist aspirations.

The three channel video work was produced during the exhibition Evergreen Inner Jungle organised by Porin kulttuurisäätö in September 2021. The video and installation can be perceived at the same time as a documentation of the exhibition and as an individual artwork.

We allow max. 5 people inside the gallery space at once. Stay at home if you feel ill or have covid symptoms. When visiting the installation, we kindly ask you to wear a mask and act responsibly. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available in the gallery.
