If one had to sum up Botannica Tirannica in a single phrase, it would be: “Every weed is a rebellious being”. In summarizing the defiance and resilience in play in the exhibition, the phrase condenses the prerogatives of the project and the exhibition. Like the sorts of weed cursed by colonial extractivism, the phrase spills out from the exhibition space, into the Gardens of resilience and onto the wall visible from the windows of the Museu Judaico de São Paulo, entangling the inside with the outside, the life of the city with the main theme of the exhibition.
