Recursive Gardens

Installation at Fabrica Research Center: Large-scale paper weavings, Multimedia Installation

Digital catalogue for the exhibbition Here Becomes Elsewhere

Recursive Gardens explores how Kindergarten and its educators shaped the development of 20th century art and design in Germany and positions nurture rather than genius as a predictor of success. Paper weaving, a Kindergarten occupation, is both the primary material of the installation and a metaphor for how to build and mend the future in which the body is present, “women's work” is fundamental, and care drives the process.
