AMALIA PICA | PETRIFIED GARDEN

PERMANENT INSTALLATION SINCE 2009
PRIMARY SCHOOL UTRECHT, HOLLAND

During workshops, children were asked to fantasize about plants, about what they would look like in the past or in the future, and to make drawings or spatial impressions. Based on these stories and images, sculptures was designed for the petrified garden: ”solidified plants”. The garden is intended as a meeting place, but it also aims to be a breeding ground for new stories and cultural activities. Writer Maria Barnas wrote stories about the origins of the garden. They are bundled in a booklet accompanying the project.
