The simplest possible garden for a peppermint plant that I could imagine, 2019
Mentha × piperita, peppermint tablets, toothpaste, carboxymethyl cellulose, soil
A wall made of peppermint tablet bricks and peppermint tooth paste mortar surrounds this garden in which a peppermint plant grows. On this scale it becomes a mighty tree.
This work was part of the exhibition One and an other are another. A magazine with the same title is published along the exhibition in 15 issues, it contains photo essays by the artists and a “critical dictionary”. The publication refers to the surrealist magazine documents. Its 15 issues were published between 1929 and 1931 and featured a critical dictionary as well. My contributions to the dictionary include texts describing the words “artificial”, “model” and “paradise”.
