[Up]Root is a sensory exploration playing with concepts of space, female bodies and natural materials. Take your time to encounter what normally passes by: to see the common weed from another angle, to delve into touch and smell within a temporary garden for the urban sense.
Through a physical research into the anatomy of herbs [Up]Root asks questions about what we ultimately define as desirable and how we control nature and bodies alike.
A trio of chopping, ripping and pulling.
