In search of Sharawadgi. With contributions by Joseph Beuys, Kie Ellens, Anne Geene, Giuseppe Licari, Geert Mul, Darcy Neven, Vijai Patchineelam & Adrijana Gvozdenovic, Sanne Vaassen.
In Search of Sharawadgi presents the ideas and dreams of Piet Oudolf and LOLA Landscape
Architects. Piet Oudolf is Holland’s most wellknown garden designer and he has completed
such famous projects as the High Line in New York.
The exhibition takes visitors on a journey, showing them how public gardens and landscapes across the world have been transformed. From the High Line in New York, the gardens of Hauser & Wirth in Somerset, the Star Maze in Tytsjerk to the Leisure Lane in Parkstad. Familiarise yourself with Oudolf’s and LOLA’s ultimate vision for the future: a global
forest against the warming of the earth. It is a dream that can start in anyone’s garden, however big or small.
On our journey we are accompanied by the artists Joseph Beuys, Kie Ellens, Anne Geene, Giuseppe Licari, Geert Mul, Darcy Neven, Vijai Patchineelam & Adrijana Gvozdenovic, Sanne Vaassen.
With new and existing work, they present us with an extraordinary perspective on both the discipline of garden design, and major issues such as global warming and the impact of nature on our well-being.
In collaboration with publishing company nai010, SCHUNCK presents the eponymous book which will be available when the exhibition is opened.
This exhibition has come about as a result of IBA Parkstad. ‘Piet and LOLA’ have worked together with IBA Parkstad on the design of the proposed Leisure Lane, a 33-kilometre cycleway through some of Parkstad’s most scenic countryside, and on a planting project at Etzenrade castle. The exhibition provides you with some fascinating information on both these projects.
The IBA expo-year will take place from July 2021 to August 2022.
