Plant Fever @ CID au Grand-Hornu
(18.10.2020 ︎︎︎ 14.02.2021)*



* Please note that due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the CID au Grand-Hornu museum had to close its doors on Thursday, October 29th. Follow @plant__fever to stay updated regarding the new opening dates.








Plant Fever is showcased in a beautifully restored 19th-century red brick building that testifies of the industrial past of the Grand-Hornu site, which is a former coal mine and, since 2012, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.





Oranised in three chapters (1. Plants as Resources / 2. Plants as Pets / 3. Plants as Allies), the various projects invite the audience to look at design from the perspective of plants.






The scenography is composed of warm wooden structures and semitransparent surfaces that recall the atmosphere of greenhouses.
