Filmstills from ‍Ultra Ecosexual Polyamory. Permaculture ASAP, for Onomatopee Eindhoven.

A futuristic pagan performer was intimate with the trees and greens in a city center for approximately 2-hours. During their appearance a hand-out was distributed, which features the textual piece shown below.

Ultra Ecosexual Polyamory. Permaculture ASAP. is a performance-video recorded in Eindhoven for We Are The Market, at Onomatopee Eindhoven, where it was shown alongside of works by Gil & Moti, Harmen de Hoop, Su Tomesen, Toine Klaassen, and others.

"Scare the established order, by falling in love, deeply, with all things green!"

"The Flaneur, The Druid, The Individual, The Collective, The City; all were present simultaneously. What Venus delivered on that rainy day was a mossy fuck you to the way we interact with cities and our attitudes towards nature.

Whether it was trees outside Primark or in a car park, chlorophyll was sought out and communed with, caressed and kissed. Jasper rightly points out, that in our contemporary we have lobbyists, politicians and representatives for companies, but very little such things for nature and all the things it provides for free.

While the performance was just for the day, what it allowed for was a glimpse at a symbiotic future. By showing that these natural sites can be of interest, Griepink challenged what has economic worth in the city centre and what doesn't. Pushing a kind of political Druidism, the artist was at one point met with some hostility with some children shouting insults like ‘Tree Hugger’ at him. Although to Griepink this was not a slight but an affirmation that others like himself still existed."
