Studio Wild is one of the winners of the Open Call of Het Stimuleringsfonds Creative Industries and HNi
for La Biennale di Venezia.
In 2021 Studio Wild will be part of the official Dutch parallel program organised around the theme Multispecies Urbanism.


The Forbidden Garden of Europe

Studio Wild will design a garden of invasive plants for La Biennale di Venezia 2021. Using plants as  metaphor, The Forbidden Garden of Europe sheds new light on politically charged topics and tells the story of 'invasive alien plant species' which are on a controversial list by the European Union. Based on their ethnic and biological characteristics, these species pose a threat to native European plants and are illegal to grow, trade, and transport throughout the EU.

This garden contains the voices and bodies of these ‘forbidden’ plants and speaks the words and fates of many of our neighbours struggling to find common ground in Europe.
