The Plant 7 – Asparagus Fern, with the cover that has been shot by Ola Rindal.
The Plant 7 evokes the end of summer with Ola Rindal and travels to Namaqualand to discover its blooming season. Sarah Illenberger plays with Flowerworks and florist Mark Colle recalls the immortal nature of goldenrocks. You will also find Marcelo Gomes’ study on green colour, a conversation with a bonsai master and a pleasant …walk through Amsterdam’s plant life.
Pia Riverola guides us through Edward James’ garden of Las Pozas and we follow Jennilee Marigomen hiking Mount Baker and Kuba Ryniewicz exploring the last primeval forest in Europe.
The Plant 7 also reports Joseph Beuys’ 7000 Oaks, learns about the crisp and salty taste of samphire and fables about Alvar Aalto’s legendary Savoy vase. Fiction comes through Blow Up review and Luis Cerveró’s approach to the relation between flowers and female orgasms. As always, Scheltens and Abbenes take over the recipes to show some serious cereals for breakfast.
In the monograph of The Plant 7 you will discover the charming but tricky nature of the Asparagus Fern with illustrations by Jordy van den Nieuwendijk, Shoboshobo, Grace Danico, Johanna Tagada and Elliot Freeman.
