Plant and Human pain

Photographed by Nika Sandler.

“I think, like modern biologists, that plants feel pain. They found out that plants secrete substances that suppress it and react to anesthetics like animals and people.
In my works, I show plants unconventionally beautiful: painful, dying, dead. I compare the external manifestations of their illnesses and deaths with the bodily suffering and dying of people. Thus, I try to find common ground between the tragic side of plant and human existence.” A project by Nika Sandler.
