Pluralistic Spring Planting
Installation, Art Hall, Tallinn, Spring Exhibition, March-April 2012

The Installation was composed of about a hundred flowerpots in line and filled with soil. Visitors could plant a couple of seeds in the pots, wish for something, and write out the wish on the wall. After the end of the exhibition, the plants were taken out and replanted in Tallin's Liberty Square carrying thousands of wishes (5700 visitors at the Spring Exhibition). The Grain and the Chaff, a harvest feast / performance took place there later in August, as part of the exhibition Re.act.feminism#2 at Tallinn Art Hall.
