On display outdoors: An installation by Olaf Holzapfel
What do craft skills have to say about the culture of a region and its relationship to nature? The large wooden sculpture by Olaf Holzapfel designed for the project Parzelle 3 in the allotment garden area is built in a blockhouse technique that was widespread in Europe before being replaced by other, non-renewable building materials.
The untreated spruce trunks that Olaf Holzapfel assembled show traces of the bark beetle everywhere. They are from a huge forest land that has died back in the past three years due to the effects of global climate warming in Germany. The artist is also concerned with long-term perspectives: Is it possible that future urban planning will be different because of global warming?
Olaf Holzapfel (*1967 in Dresden) is a fine artist. After studying at the Dresden University of Fine Arts, his artistic work has been focused on the relationship between humans and landscapes as well as craft knowledge drawn from nature.
Admission to the art projects and the exhibition pavilion in the garden is free. We cordially invite you to individually visit the projects, which are all on display outdoors in the fresh air. We also recommend taking a walk through the garden area, which has already been awarded numerous prizes for its diversity.
