Memory of the Garden

video HD, 16:9, 2016

The work is a three-channel video installation recorded in a botanical garden. In this project, the concept of the garden as a form shaped by nature is juxtaposed with the structure of the human eye, serving as a starting point for reflections on the processes of visual perception and its related memory.

In the video work, the garden, as a human-created form that requires constant maintenance, is compared to the material structure of the eye: a place that is continuously shaped by sunlight during the ongoing processes of visual perception. The interior structure of the eye, shaped in such a way, is compared to a medieval cloister garden—a meticulously planned small monastery garden whose layout and vegetation reflect symbolic content and meanings.
