Allora & Calzadilla. "Graft"

26 May–1 December 2019

Exhibition Overview

Allora & Calzadilla, Under Discussion, 2005. Single-channel color video with sound, 6’ 14”.

In spring 2019, the Puerto-Rico-based duo Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla will present their first major solo project in Russia as part of the Garage Square Commission series.

Visitors to the park and the Museum will have the unique opportunity to witness the phantom blooming of Roble Amarillo trees (Tabebuia chrysantha), a common native species in the Caribbean. Recreating the delicate yellow flowers of these tropical trees, thousands of artificial blossoms will remain scattered across Garage Square throughout the summer and winter as an enduring reminder of the increasingly rapid disappearance of the planet’s biodiversity.
