Plant Fetish by Chanje Kunda
Plant Fetish by Chanje Kunda

The show was created by performance artist Chanje Kunda who was suffering with stress and anxiety when she first discovered that plants soothe the soul. 

She then learnt that some women in Mexico, fed up with men, were getting married to trees. Trees aren’t very talkative, but they are tall, do great things for the planet, and are renowned for their wood. 

Chanje was inspired and surrendered to this notion. She fell in love with plants: fleshy succulents, monstera’s handshaped leaves, the Venus flytrap, the twining of a creeper. The pressures of life drifted away. This show maps her journey, and will feature a harem of stunning tropical plants that dress the stage. 

There will be music and movement, dramatic narrative and metaphors of growth and renewal. The show ends on a climax… This show maps her journey, and will feature a harem of stunning tropical plants that dress the stage. There will be music and movement, dramatic narrative and metaphors of growth and renewal. The show ends on a climax… We are forever comparing our lives to those of others on social media and the superficial numbers game that is dating via online apps. Plant Fetish will inspire you to embrace foliage over FOMO! 



Plant Fetish originally started as a photographic series for social media platforms which explored FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) and received a great response.  More on Chanje Kunda
