Flora of Russia / Rysk Flora

Flora of Russia is a text based project examining the (capitalist) consumption of bodies through the term “The flourishing decay” by danish poet Inger Christensen. The project is divided into four parts: Hypothesis / Hypotes, The Experiment / Experimentet, Flora of Russia / Rysk Flora and The Farm Listerlandet / Farmen Listerlandet. We are following the russian wrestler Alexandr Karelin on his last wrestling match, the young russian model Nadya (inspired by the documentary Girl Model, directed by Ashley Sabin and David Redmon) and a mink living in a cage on a Swedish mink farm.
