Proposal for a Garden (Geneva)

Proposal for a Garden challenges people’s perspectives on the diversity of plants found in the city, and in particular questions the notion of ‘weeds’. To highlight these often unloved plants, he has created the conceptual garden Proposal for a garden (Geneva), designed with the help of architect Andreas Lechthaler.

By exploring our relationship with what we do or don’t accept in our urban environment, the artist evokes the evolution of our relationship with nature, where little by little the qualities of plants (medicinal or nutritional) have been forgotten, ultimately reducing them to the status of ‘invasive plants’. Proposal for a Garden aims to remind us of the usefulness of these plants and to restore their value, treating them with the same care as ‘traditional’ cultivated plants.
