Performative lecture that discloses some mysteries about insects and plants, their connections to our food and the roles of gender in pollination. The intervention was part of the finissage at Kirpilä Art House exhibition Table Scenes and was linked to the still life composition Feast of Pollen Gold.
A variation of the performative lecture was shown in an academic context at the Human-Animal Studies Conference (Un)Common Worlds in Turku, 2018. An article about the event is written by Vilma Mättö and published in the fall 2019 in the Trace Magazine.
