2013, Installation mit lebenden Pflanzen (Apfelbaum und Rosenstrauch)/ Installation with living plants (apple tree and rose bush)

Im Rahmen des Biokunstclubs „Pavillon_35“ beschäftigen wir uns sowohl mit molekularbiologischen Prozessen im Rahmen von Laborarbeit als auch mit Pflanzen und deren Wachstum und der künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung mit diesen lebendigen Materialien. Gleichzeitig versuchen wir, Methoden und Abläufe zu entwickeln, zu entdecken oder wiederzuentdecken.

„Baumchimäre“ setzt sich mit dem so genannten Prozess der „Pflanzenveredelung“ auseinander. Mittels der Technologie des Pfropfens wird aus unterschiedlichen Pflanzen eine Baum-Chimäre erzeugt. Dadurch entsteht ein aus genetisch unterschiedlichen Geweben aufgebauter Organismus.
Wird die Technik des Pfropfens in der Regel zum „Veredeln“, also zum Verbessern oder Erhalt einer „besonderen“ Pflanzensorte eingesetzt, so wird sie im Rahmen der „Baumchimäre“ rein formal zum Einsatz gebracht.


In the context of the bio art club ‘Pavillon_35′ we deal with molecular biological processes within the scope of laboratory work on the one hand and also with their process of growth and the artistic involvement with these living materials. At the same time, we try to develop, discover, or re-discover methods and procedures.

‘Tree Chimera’ is dealing with the so-called process of ‘plant propagation’. By means of a technology called ‘grafting’, a tree chimera is produced from different plants. This creates an organism which is based on genetically different tissues.

The ‘grafting’ technique is usually used to ‘propagate’ aka. to improve or preserve an ‘exceptional’ plant variety but in the context of the ‘Tree Chimera’, we deploy it in a purely formal way.

This cube-like object occupies space. The materiality is translucent but not transparent,
creating an intimate and private retreat area. At night the cube is illuminated by an
imitation of television signals which simulates the visibility of private spaces in the cities
at night through the windows, visible from the street.
It seems to be possible to view through the film, but because of the structure it is only
possible to see some distorted structures from behind.
The object is shaped by air, making it impossible to create an accurate cube. It seems that
the higher pressure inside the cuboid creates a hybrid form between cube and sphere.
At the same time the translucent material and this half-organic form embed the object
inside the space, may it be inside or outside, countryside or in the city and changes its
appearance in every different environment.

cartographies of everyday at sea – art residency

The huge amount of spiders around the art colony inspired me to work on this three spiderweb structures. Because the spiders immediately populate the artificial web, the structure of the network changes continuosly and introduces a different point of view to those omnipresent creatures and engages a coexistence between insects and art.
