Ines Doujak – Biopiracy

Ines Doujak

In 2007, the installation Siegesgärten | Victory Gardens by Ines Doujak was one of the most popular works of art at documenta 12 in Kassel. Doujak’s large pot with plants, standing high on branches painted white, was always surrounded by people. A lot was noticeably wrong here: on the one hand the white branches that grew downwards like bleached bones, and on the other hand the »plants above« that were not flowers, but little bags of seeds with disturbing pictures and texts printed on them.
