When we give someone a flower, we give them the sexual organs of an individual plant.
De la sexualité des orchidées (On the sexuality of orchids) is a performance-lecture during which an artist disguised as a lecturer, Sofia Teillet, discusses orchid reproduction.
After a detailed analysis, in which an apparently simple act turns out to be a complex and technical operation, questions emerge on the future of the seed. How will it germinate? Should its symbiotic relationship with a fungus be called parasitism? Does symbiosis exist? And where does the Humpback Anglerfish fit into all of this?
A battery of questions can arise when we observe life. And ultimately, all that science is fairly certain of, is that everything happened by accident.
