Cream Co. presents Plant Your Fears Here

Plant Your Fears Here

In the spirit of Halloween, Cream Co. presents a new iteration of General Economy Exquisite Exchange (G.E.E.E.): Plant Your Fears Here. This interactive installation of plants and language will use fears as an opportunity for growth. Participants will be invited to write down a fear and attach it to an allium bulb to be planted by Cream Co . Spider plantlets will be offered as a receipt of release.

About G.E.E.E.

General Economy Exquisite Exchange (G.E.E.E.) facilitates public, creative exchanges of plants, goods and words. Based on trust and goodwill as the operative currencies, G.E.E.E. transforms underutilized spaces into functional trading sites, and seeds exchanges with seedlings. From installations and events, G.E.E.E. has received thousands of notes, poems, and trades as records of the hope and generosity of communities.  G.E.E.E. is a project of CreamCo, a collaborative art practice committed to collapsing the boundaries between art and life.

G.E.E.E. is an ongoing series which has been presented at the Hyde Park Art Center (2011-2013), Union for Contemporary Art (2013), Museum of Contemporary Art (2014), Dorchester Projects (2013-2014) and the Reva and David Logan Center at the University of Chicago (2015).
