LIGHTBOX: A weed is a plant in the wrong place by Adham Faramawy

Attributes

  • Type Outdoor Arts

Until 1 September

Two dancers in a field of fireweed are magnified across Chapter’s entrance in this artwork by Adham Faramawy. One dancer stands mirroring the plants tall stems and the other touches its pink petals.

Often considered a weed, fireweed is a self-seeding plant that has the extraordinary ability to grow on burnt ground.

In positioning marginalised bodies within and tending to this landscape with text that reads, ‘a weed is a plant in the wrong place’, Adham is destabilising ideas of rootedness and ‘the natural’. Who decides who belongs and who is welcome?

For Adham, nature is a site of refuge and resilience, a transgressive space of resistance where plants thrive despite displacement and weeds withstand hostile environments.
