/The Traveling Plant /has been selected for ISEA Paris and 
is thrilled to discover the Nelson Mandela Garden, laying 
right /above/ the ISEA venue, at the very centre of the 
City. Under the guidance of artist Eva-Maria Lopez and with 
the active participation of ISEA attendees and free 
audience, in the now traditional art and science 
methodologies of /fieldtrips /and /walkspaces, The Traveling 
Plant /is walked through five Stations to uncover a new 
understanding of this specific designed urban environment. 
Eva-Maria Lopez is reading the garden through some selected 
plants and areas, bringing to the forefront stories 
—historical, economical, political and botanical— that the 
plants are embodying. The Tour is part of her project /The 
Gentlemen in my garden./

/The Veridical Travel Around The World of A True Imaginary 
Plant/traces the voyage of a plant —real, artificial or 
fictitious— around the world, telling its own story, the 
stories of other plants and living creatures (other than 
human and humans) it encounters, of whom and what it meets.

Initiated in 2020, /The Traveling Plant/ (/TP /for short) 
started its voyage in the Kepler's Garden of Ars Electronica 
before going to Barcelona and Evora in 2021.

*Eva-Maria Lopez*, is an artist working with the themes of 
nature, ecology and their historical contexts. In her 
projects, she explores the relationship between object and 
environment. Her sensitivity to the destruction of natural 
habitats and resources, as well as socially anchored 
structures in contemporary societies, is highly visible. In 
her work, Lopez places various realities in new contexts and 
thereby make them visible.



The Traveling Plant Team: Annick Bureaud, Tatiana 
Kourochkina, Marta de Menezes, Claudia Schnugg, Robertina 

The meeting point will be communicated closer to the event 
to the registered participants.
