Svenska växter

Svenska växter is now in Moderna museets collection and was performed at the exhibition Svenska förvärv Tändstickor in May 2022. Gerd Aurell depicts the plants in Björn Ursings’s handbook Svenska växter (1950), in layer upon layer in a six-day performance work named after the book. Initially the plants are identifiable, but the image soon turns to something else. At a distance, it is an impelling black hole. If you look closely, you can still make out delicate leaves and stems.
