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.dddd
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.
