Garden State, at Garage, Rotterdam, 01.05 – 11.07.2021
The group exhibition Garden State shows a selection of works that emphasize wild margins from our super-monitored surroundings and examine the ‘garden methodologies’ of contemporary control systems. The concept of the exhibition is inspired by the city of Rotterdam, its port, and its landscape engineering.
As a group, the works aspire to give a non-mainstream portrait of the urban cityscape. Garden State presents critical reflections on land use, reclamation, mapping, militarism and territory, urban growth, industrial technologies, and their repercussions on nature and ecosystems.
