In September 2017, I decided to cross borders with plants. I made a long train journey from Switzerland through Germany, Belarus, Russia, Turkestan and finally Kazakhstan. At each stop, I gathered weeds growing near the tracks. The plants were then planted in the small portable garden I was carrying. Arriving in Almaty, a city in full urban regeneration, whose numerous building work is hidden by large tarpaulins illustrated by idealized landscapes, I exposed the travelling herbs in ceramics on a decorative canvas of construction site enhanced with phosphorescent paint.
