A Deep Sense of Conviviality is an index of green plants located in public areas of Shanghai (subways, banks, police stations, museums, official buildings …)
The green plants have been precisely geolocated, measured and weighted with the following limitations : if the plant is taller than the artist, will be indicated > 1m68. If the plant is too heavy for the artist to carry, will be indicated > 30 kgs. The color of the plant is named after the closest color on a painting catalogue for living rooms.
Pot included in the archival.
A Deep Sense of Conviviality ironically questions China’s continual surveillance and police state.
