In this book Céline Condorelli unfolds the research and reflections on the garden as exhibition that lead to a series of works culminating with Zanzibar, a permanent public artwork for King’s Cross, London. This project deals with the stories of plants that used to inhabit exhibition interiors at New York’s MoMA: houseplants, like most of the museum apparatus of visibility, do not appear in the history of art and yet have shared spaces with artworks throughout the history of exhibitions. The artworks are also cumulative studies of a restaurant and concert venue named Zanzibar, in Salvador de Bahia on the coast of Brazil, designed by Lina Bo Bardi around an existing mango tree.
