Justinien Tribillon (French, b.1989) in collaboration with Cécile Trémolières (French, b.1989), Offshore Studio (Switzerland, est.2016), Caroline Fodor (French, b. 1986), Adrien Coste (French, b. 1986), Pedro Escobar (Mexican, b. 1984) and Misia Forlen (French, b.1989)



Welcome to Borderland explores the reality of border away from the geographical lines that define it via the prism of plants. A critical take on botany, identity and space enables us to explore a tension, a nexus of architectures, social constructions, imaginaries, objects, and discourses. Plants are invasive, wild, indigenous, naturalized. Plants have IDs, and they follow rules. Yet more often than not, they flout them: they crack the walls. In all plants and their behaviors, we find traces of the borders away from the border, the contradictions of flows and fences. In the space they create, we recognize the segregated sociospatial archipelagos that, together, make our planetary borderland.
