This article offers a posthuman interpretation of the artist Wolfgang Laib{\textquoteright}s method of work with pollen presenting it as a performative ecological proposition. I investigate Laib{\textquoteright}s method of collection and presentation of pollen through the posthuman theory of agential realism conceived by the physic Karen Barad. Through this theoretical perspective I propose that Laib{\textquoteright}s method constitutes a performative configuration of relationships within which both the artist and the pollen emerge as agentive. This is a proposition within which the artist emerges as entangled in a web of relations, that includes his creations, the cosmos and the environment where he dwells and all other living organisms inhabiting the same environment.",
