'Teach Me to Disappear' shows that life still thrives amongst the crumbling remains of what once was. Put together by artists Paul Elliman and Nicole Macdonald, this series documents the plant life that has overtaken the abandoned Bell Isle Zoo of Detroit.

'Teach Me to Disappear' project features a collection of video and audio recordings of the happenings with this secret wilderness. Installed at the Casco in Utrecht, it "sets out to become a field trip camp from where a new urban language can be experienced," according to their website.
