Fallow Lands, 1990
installation

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
