*Residency with artist Margherita Pevere*

“In times of surging ecological crisis, how can we shift our perspective, embrace ethical complexity, and foster attunement to botanical entities that inhabit one’s biotope?”

During a *week-long residency in a garden in Treviso*, artist Margherita Pevere will collaborate with various *Roots & Seeds XXI partners* and guests working in the fields of art, botany and transdisciplinary research through walks, daily rituals, and conversations. Her research will focus on the *local flora* as a point of departure to reflect on biodiversity, environmental death and anthropogenic ecological changes.

The residency is part of the artist’s wider research project, */Unframing Death, /*an investigation into /death/ from *more-than-human* and *queer* perspectives and an invitation to *reflect on the process of dying as a creative one*, responding to the urgency of art in times of environmental disruption and the ecological effects of human action.

The residency will culminate in two Dissemination Events within *Roots & Seeds XXI*, taking place in Bologna in the framework of the Festival Resilienze and a Garden Cartography in Treviso (event already sold out).

*Margherita Pevere*is an internationally acknowledged artist and researcher whose practice glides across biological arts and performance with a distinctive visceral signature. Her transdisciplinary inquiry hybridizes biolab practice, biotechnology, ecology, environmental politics, gender and death studies, with a healthy dose of hacking attitude to create arresting installations and performances that hunt today’s surging ecological complexity.




*Roots & Seeds XXI. Biodiversity Crisis and Plant Resistance*is an international project fostering behavioural commitment, care and action towards the *preservation of plant biodiversity *and promoting sustainable practices through Art & Science collaborations. The project’s *Dissemination Events* aim at generating passion and emotional connection, promoting habits that take care of our environment and its plants, while enriching our botanical literacy and giving attention to vegetal resilience.

Roots & Seeds XXI. Biodiversity Crisis and Plant Resistance is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
