A sonic and organic/machinic installation by Johannes Büttner and Bastian Hagedorn, which is based on the Queen of the Night cactus and feeds off social media content.

About

‘Königin der Nacht’ or Queen of the Night is the vernacular name given to a rare species of cactus. The Selenicereus grandiflorus hardly blossoms in its lifespan, but when it does it is always at night, with the white vanilla-scented petals having wilted and died before dawn.

This Königin is an even more peculiar type. Growing in the half-dark, it doesn't feed on organic matter – instead you can help with the fertilization process and bring her to life. But the fertilizer may be hard for us to provide... 

Performance by Johannes Büttner and Bastian Hagedorn. 
Starting 5pm
Sunday 2 September
