JUGLANS REGIA:Tasting nature in culture

Local councillors decided to change woods formerly planted for the production of timber for the coalmines into 'new nature'.
Apart from this program they invited the artist to reflect on this program and create an artistic statement.

The artist regards this program as developed as gardening with only a romantic view on nature. The ecological targets are respectful. The artist regrets the lack of any landscape design. He even uses the nickname 'eco-fundamentalists' for these planners who have only a focus on ecological habitats and have no consideration with the recreation of people.

Like a sculptor the artist cuts into the wooded area to make space for walnut trees. Thus you taste culture in nature.
