“The Secret Life of Plants by Mariangela Tan” at My Plastic Heart

Opening tonight at My Plastic Heart is “The Secret Life of Plants,” a new solo show featuring the works of Brooklyn-based artist Mariangela Tan. The exhibit includes illustrations and fiber sculptures by Tan that “explores the evolution of typical houseplants and how they adapt in an urban landscape.”

Maybe post apocalyptic, maybe alternate reality, Mariangela sees a future of self-aware carnivorous plants, living and loving much like you and me. She invites you to take a glimpse into their world.

This exhibit is cash and carry, meaning you can buy and bring the artwork home with you in opposed to waiting till the show ends to collect it. Tan herself will also be at the show to meet fans.
