The focus of the solo exhibition Planty of Love by Badel/Sarbach is the cochineal louse; an animal that was already dried, pulverized and exported to Europe in early modern times. It influenced art history and is still traded as a pigment today. In a multimedial and humorous way, the artist duo deals with distinction and empathy in human’s relationship with other animals and fellow plants, as well as with the concept of Naturkultur.
