This unedited issue of Spectre invites contemporary artists to share their interpretation of vegetal trauma.
Plants feel the pressures, constraints and violence of the outside world. Our irresponsible and contemptuous behaviour towards plants only increases the trauma suffered. Being deeply rooted and sedentary beings, plants have no choice but to undergo and adapt. Their lives are made up of successive aggressions whose memory they keep and whose effects must be overcome. They bear the traces and stigmata left by the traumas of a living environment that it is not possible to escape.
