Sori Underneath III, 2016. Still from video. Concept, video and photos by Marina Cavadini. Gloves by Eva Maria Lourdes.

In this video, I engage in sensual gestures of communication with a fern. Trying to achieve an alliance across human and non-human, I focus on feelings because it moves us away from an understanding being strictly cognitive. Ferns date back two hundred million years before the flowering plants evolved. They reproduce via spores, which are located underneath their fronds. The audience witnesses my encounter with plants as I approach them wearing lace gloves. The white polka dots create a formal link to the plant’s spores.
