Cestrum Nocturnum is a collaborative exploration of night blooming plants by artists Jenna Bonistalli and Vanessa Adams. Opening under the light of the moon, these plants have long been associated with subconscious and magical states of being. Via installations of print and paper, illuminated projections, and physical plant bodies, Cestrum Nocturnum is an investigation into the unseen cycles of life, the celestial, and the ephemera of nocturnal botanicals in all their dimensions.
