In Fictoflorus Concreta, the artist assumes the role of a fake botanist, revealing a collection of 'newly discovered' plant species. However, these specimens are merely weeds, grass, and plants uprooted due to urbanisation. The work presents a commentary on the relentless human quest to control and manipulate the natural world. It is a call to environmental awareness, underscoring how a small patch of land has borne witness to the destruction of countless plants. May we be reminded of the global impact of urbanisation and deforestation on our planet's ecosystems, urging us to reflect on the consequence of nature's daily, irreplaceable loss.
