Green Thumbs and Going Places.





{MEJUNJE}

I'm currently obsessed with this project/blog.

"Mejunje is the collaborative research project of Argentine artists Mercedes Villalba and Juli├ín Gatto. Since they have many common interests and activities — namely drawing, gardening, carpentry, writing poetry, taking walks, peeping into other people’s gardens to see how they tend them, etc — Mejunje instantly became a multidisciplinary project of ‘knowledge-gathering’. In these times were the emphasis of ‘valuable’ knowledge is all about specificity and compartmentation, they feel that perhaps it is necessary to go back to knowing ‘a little bit of everything’— this might be the key to more sustainable, independent and responsible processes for art making and living in general."
