Ulrike Mohr - ein künstlerisches Gartenprojekt
Weeds, wild herbs, useful plants – invasive or decorative – under which aspects do people assess the plants in their surroundings? The artist Ulrike Mohr documented the plants of an unused garden plot (Parzelle 3) prior to its redesign in a semi-unkempt state, with the aim of establishing a new garden following different rules – the Gnadengarten.
In the summer of 2020, the garden had turned into a wild, blooming poppy field with innumerable wild herbs. More than 50 different wild and cultivated plants were lifted in collaboration with the gardener Sabine Kroehs and the seeds of all annual plants were collected. The project can be viewed in a first phase before completion; in the coming days it will be completed by sowing and growth.
Ulrike Mohr (*1970 in Tuttlingen) is a fine artist. She studied at the weißensee academy of art berlin. In her works, she explores cultural techniques that have evolved from the coexistence of humans and nature.
Admission to the art projects and the exhibition pavilion is free of charge. We cordially invite you to individually view the projects. All projects are presented outdoors in the fresh air. We also recommend taking a walk through the garden grounds that have already won numerous awards on account of the many diverse gardens.
