DiptoのBento – Seeds of Origin – Ours, and Trees
About the Event
In conjunction with Gallery Weekend Kuala Lumpur this coming November, we are hosting a Bicara session with The Tropicalist to talk about what is Dipterocarps.
“Dipterocarps,” Greek for two-winged (dipteros) fruit (karpos), are the trees that changed the course of Malaysia’s history.
Her name, Salabhanjika, derives from the Sal tree. The botanical name for the Sal tree is Shorea Robusta.
It is a dipterocarp.
In the olden days, it was thought that the very touch of a woman could fertilize a plant.
Salabhanjika represents this special relationship between women and nature.
You know, the biggest, tallest dipterocarps, the ones that thrive in the light, they also have the
most resource needs.
A tree is a living being that cannot move.
Calling all Tropicalists!
Let’s Bicara about our roots, quite literally, at the Me.reka together with our friends from The Tropicalist.
Book your seat(s) now before it runs out!
Free flow of coffee and tea will be provided too!
