The performance Anümn / Plantar / Sow, 2020 by Paula Baeza Pailamilla is based on the cosmovision that accompanies you, where plants and earth connect with you. Your process of recognition leads to approximations to the environment that it absorbs. From this strangeness, new constructions arise, which harbor the absences of migration. Plantar is a performance that deals with the categorization of foreign plants and trees in Switzerland, also referred to as „foreigners and intruders.“ Paula Baeza Pailamilla collected branches of various species that were labeled as foreign during her wanderings through the Old Botanical Garden in Zurich. She then made a large bouquet out of them and hung it on a bridge over the Sihl, where one could hear the names of all these species.
