Fallow Lands, 1990


Fallow lands / outskirts / gaps in the urban / are places where boundaries show themselves as something continuous / in motion – uncertain. Lonely areas in all their variety correspond to today’s urgency / the noticing of turning-points/ connections and their vibrations / the garden as a symbol of voluntary renunciation / of tranquillity of non-intervention. Space / created as a consequence of precise carelessness towards what we generally call nature – RUDERAL SOCIETY – further and essential a work about emerging and ceasing – towards invisible nature.

A place/ where the living

shows itself

visibly above the ordering

Where the impossibility

of destruction

blossoms again and again

from its opposite

from imaginable consequences

of the non-sterile

into a daring future

Lois Weinberger 1990
