This expert in “weeds” will present her Laboratoire du Dehors, or the Outdoor Lab. Her approach aims at breaking down boundaries between methodologies and at balancing different theories on living organisms. With the purpose of bringing together public space and urban professionals (philosophers, architects, landscape artists, urban planners, engineers) and life scientists (ecologists, geneticists, agronomists, biologists), this Laboratory is a forum for critically viewing our outdoors and the living organisms that inhabit it.

Liliana Motta

Artist-botanist, L. Motta loves plants more than anything in the world! Born in Buenos Aires (AR) in 1959, she works to rehabilitate “alien plants,” that is, those that travel and adapt to a new environment. Using nomadic, so-called invasive, species, or weeds, L. Motta planted the courtyard garden at 49 Nord 6 Est. She now returns to display in the central courtyard a collection of brambles and eucalypti. The latter plant, endowed with potent medicinal properties, adapted to all climes and requiring no maintenance, has come to us from distant Tasmania where the Aborigines have used it to purify troubled water… What could be better in these times?
