Allotment

glass | installation 200 x 200 x 200 cm | 2011

This idea of local gardening and the importance of plants is reflected in 7 different glass objects. The use of glass strengthens the feel of sensitivity in this very fragile matter.
The 7 objects represent the 3 different stages of the gardening with food and plants: sowing time, nourishment and harvest. The 3 stages are protected by a scarecrow. Each object is a still life, referring to the local and slow traffic in the world of allotments.
