The Perennial Institute is a collaborative project that involves a multidisciplinary group of artists, curators, biologists, gardeners, herbalists and more in a variety of global research activities.

The project was initiated by Jai McKenzie, an artist and researcher with a PhD from the University of Sydney, Australia. She has taught art and design students at Sydney College of the Arts and the University of Technology, Sydney. Jai has spent the last seven years engaged in Berlin's contemporary art scene, and has worked for local artists Haegue Yang and Olafur Eliasson.
