statement:

Plants and weeds become overlooked yet active subject, with potential to break through the ‘fragile borders'. Monumentalising undergrowth and weeds: toxic and dreamlike neons touch figural plant matter that form caressing entanglements. Lolloping leaves break their boundaries, species intertwine. Anna's practice questions an inbetweeness of the historical dialectical condition of nature/culture, and a feminine 'othering' of nature.
