SYNOPSIS

Simple street art intervention focuses on plants that have grown up from gaps or damages in architecture and streets. Due to their invasive nature they are usually automatically recognized as intruders among decorative plants shaped by people’s taste. However, we can notice them even in ordered urban areas at the spots we can just admire how they happened at. Through this intervention I played with term of cultivation followed by simple adaptation of these plants to form of ‘a nice green plant in a clay pot’. In this way I emphasized their aesthetic value. Showing them in a shape of cultivated plant changed their presence and consequently made them noticed in a humorous way by passers-by. The intervention took place in Celje (Slovenia) in 2018. (Source: Danilo Milovanović)
