Simons’ interest in plant life has extended to a study of root systems. How do roots of plants grasp and mingle with each other? Which strategy does the plant use in its search for a stronger grip as well as water? The underground texture reveals the traces of this search. In Pineteum Blijdenstein Simone presents the installation Radix Morgana Pinetum. On glass plates grow several conifers. The root growth can be followed through the use of mirrors.
