german artist katharina grosse has conceived a a new site-specific work as part of the inaugural ARoS triennial in denmark. titled ‘the garden – end of times; beginning of times.’, the exhibition extends over two entire galleries at the ARoS museum as well as carefully selected locations in the urban landscape. forming an ‘art zone’ spanning more than five kilometers, the coastal plot has been colored a vibrant pink hue that seemingly washes over the landscape.

focusing on depictions of nature throughout history, the ARoS triennial is divided into three sections: ‘the past’, which examines the nature’s relationship with both landscape and man; ‘the present’, which considers nature in the context of the modern city; and ‘the future’, which explores the artistic reaction to environmental changes. forming part of the latter, grosse’s painting has been conceived as a ‘mobile garden’.

‘my paintings can land anywhere at any time, so can your thoughts, and therefore they transform your understanding of every moment from the most intimate to the political,’ katharina grosse tells curator marie nipper. ‘looking at the paintings bids us to understand that things look different every time, even if we console ourselves that we are familiar with a revisited situation.’ the installation remains on view until july 30, 2017.
