We eat sunflower seeds, picked straight from the flower. Nibbling on them we supply our bodies with vitamin E. For Turn to Liquid, Antonia Brown (SA) and Machteld Rullens (NL) started by looking at how one could react to toxic systems of bodily expenditure through processes of combustion. Somehow the figure of the flesh eating plant kept recurring. At Pracownia Portretu, located in the former textile workers’ housing complex, they present their collaborative textile piece that considers the plant as a canopic vessel and liquid trap; alongside this they will show a collection of individual works.
