"There are no tyrannies that would not try to limit art, because they can see the power of art. Art can tell the world things that cannot be shared otherwise. It is art that conveys feelings."

 - Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine

Plants are fundamentally different organisms: the leaf of a plant isn’t the same as a human’s arm. In general, plants have a different way to pass information to each other, as well as recover and defend in front of a danger. Kakhidze has been researching plants for many years, her optic on the plant world during war became even more sharp, as well as giving a hope for the future for human civilisation. In march of this year when Russian tanks were close to her studio in Muzychi she wrote on her studio’s door: “Follow the example of plants, they are pacifist, as much as possible on our planet.”
