PORK KANA CAR ROT -project and its offshoot: Keyboard for plants (2021)

Lauri Linna

About this exposition

In this exposition artist Lauri Linna discusses his PORK KANA CAR ROT project (2016-) and its offshoot the Keyboard for Plants (2019). PORK KANA CAR ROT questions and studies selective breeding which manipulates the reproduction of domesticated plants and animals. In this project the artist's practice is to maintain a carrot population in an allotment garden that is part of his artist’s studio called “The Garden of The Not Simple”. Linna tries to affect as little as possible the reproduction of these carrots in the allotment garden . Documentation of the PORK KANA CAR ROT from 2016 until 2021 is presented. Breeding has been suggested as an art form since the early 20th century. As Linna sees various issues with the methods of breeding, he wants to suggest practice of "non-breeding"; practice of choosing not to manipulate the reproduction of other-than-humans and to re-evaluate our methods. To counter the effects of selective breeding Linna also suggests the practice of "unbreeding" to breed away the domestication of our production species. This practice will become important as we in the future transfer from traditional agriculture where we have individual animals or plants, to in vitro meat and plant tissue produced in labs. This causes the humanity in future to discard the old technology – the cows, the chickens, the carrots...– and cause mass killings or mass abandonment of production species and birth of new feral plants and animals. The Keyboard for plants is an offshoot of POR KANA CAR ROT, that developed from the notion that plants have senses, can remember and change their behavior. The keyboard is a set of sensors that work like a push button that react to movements of the leaves of Mimosa pudica.
