Alaa Abu Asad, Japanese Knotweed, 2019           Oscar Cueto, The Right To Be Lazy, 2019

Opening and Story telling: 5 June 2019, 6pm
Venue: front garden of philomena+
Heinestraße 40, 1020 Vienna, Austria 

Alaa Abu Asad (born in 1989 in Nazareth and AiR with KulturKontakt Austria) invites people to look at what doesn’t pretend to be yet another controlled little ‘garden’ on the sidewalk in front of philomena+, where wild and invasive/exotic plants will be put and can grow as they wish. 
Through these plants, notions around the history of their migration and later consequences on their environment will be addressed. And as people continually move, together with their plants, they are also invited to bring their own plant and tell its story.
This event is organized in cooperation with KulturKontakt Austria and the Federal Chancellery of Austria.

Oscar Cueto (born in 1976 in Mexico-City, lives and works in Vienna) creates with five red hammocks a resting and relaxation zone on the wide pavement in front of the philomena+ project space. With the title he refers to Paul Lafargue, who draws attention to „The Right to be Lazy“ in a workaholic, industrialized society. The star-shaped arrangement around a light pole and the red colour of the installation refers to the flower to which Oscar Cueto has dedicated a two-year research project.
The intervention is part of the Agenda 21 Action Programme Grätzloase.
