THE UPSIDE DOWN KITCHEN GARDEN
The art installation is commissioned by Sønderborg commune for a new Kindergarten. It consists of 42 enameled iron plates placed in 2 compositions; one in the eating area and one in a relaxing zone. The plates hang from the ceiling with different length on metal stems like plants growing upside down. Together they create a supposed symmetrical composition. The project is inspired by vegetables, cover crops, and animals living in the kitchen garden. The garden consists of geometric shapes with hand painted motives inspired by spring cabbage and purple tansy and silhouettes of plants and insects in large scale. Conceptually inspiration is drawn from the teaching concept ‘math in nature’ focusing on patterns and forms in nature in order to create a mathematical understanding of the world. The overall idea of the installation is to create a micro adventure in order to give new perspectives on the close surroundings.
