Impossible Forest

Ein Garten/A Garden

Jared Gradinger

In the frame of 9. Tanznacht Berlin 2016


An ’impossible forest’ is taking root in the asphalt courtyard of the Uferstudios. Gradinger is creating a shared space for development in collaboration with nature and his newly extended community. With its dead trees and growing plants, the garden constitutes a social choreography. This new space begs for an encounter between human and nature, directing our attention to the cycle of blossoming and decay.
