Removing Defences

Removing Defenses is the documentation of a live act, where defensive hairs of a nettle are removed. The artists also recorded the sounds of the nettle during the operation by connecting the nettle to an audio recorder with cables. The video is questioning the idea of plants being mute and senseless.
