Founded in 2013, BOTANIPLAN VON LEE CHI explores the relationship between plants and space, exploring ideas of life and nature in its natural form. Breaking past boundaries of formality to convey messages and new ideals within the work.
Combining his background in architecture, designing proposals, education and product development has paved for a close connection between life and plant based art. Continuously garnering ideas for innovation, taking into consideration of materiality, and ideology to create works that speak for themselves.
If plants and flowers are confined by their ability to costume and romanticize life, they have lost bigger possibilities within their existence, bounded by labels of how they are defined. The growth of all life is closely tied to time, direction and the nourishment of its environment. Like the careful planning of each material is inseparable from the knowledge of its history, similar to architecture blue prints and models, they convey the sensible understanding of space. Every plant based installation adheres to detail, and expresses what the artist and team’s efforts in producing the final product.
