Valley of a Thousand Plants is an immersive installation where audiences are surrounded by a cornucopia of local plants, re-imagined as hyper-real animated forms.

The visual aesthetic takes the bizarre shapes and beautiful patterns found in the region and combines them with decorative colours and textures like neon and gold, the result is a visual world that situates itself in between the built and natural environments.

The experience makes use of MAP mima's amazing surround sound and projection facilities. Audiences will feel they are entering a dense greenhouse full of oversized plants, overflowing with flowering bulbs which have taken over the space. Audience members of all ages can engage with the plants by walking around the space to trigger the plants to come to life and blossom before their eyes.

Valley of a Thousand Plants is on view at MAP mima from 9 December 2023 – 25 February 2025.

Entry is free.
