lecture in English, on curating an expo on plants as design resources

Laura Drouet (FR) and Olivier Lacrouts (IT/FR) founded studio d-o-t-s in 2014. Currently based between Brussels and Milan (Italy), the duo develops projects that focus on historical facts, social dynamics and experimental design approaches. On February 27th, Laura and Olivier will give us a sneak peek of their latest project Plant Fever, an exhibition they are presently working on and which will open on May 31st at CID, Centre d’Innovation et Design au Grand-Hornu, near Mons. Plant Fever proposes to look at the future of design from a new vegetal perspective, moving from a human-centred to a phyto-centred design. Spanning from products and fashion items to material research, open-source devices and emerging technologies, a selection of around 50 exhibits - representing the work of creatives from more than 20 countries - will investigate notions such as plant blindness, eco-feminism, forestry, biomimicry and upcycling, but also postcolonialism and cultural landscapes. Conceived as a militant exposition, Plant Fever will not fear to take a stand, ask critical questions and call for new radical perspectives, involving the public in a positive, inspiring and constructive conversation.
