Car Garden is a videowork that is inspired by the work of Mr. Duván Antonio Ramírez, a plant breeder in Medellín, Colombia. Ramírez grows his plants on a rooftop garden, sowing generations of specimens that he transport to people in the city with an installation he made for his car. The idea to use the space on the outside of car for transporting plants inspired me to think differently about the outsides of cars. It gave me the possibility to envision cars with plants on them.
This project has been made in collaboration with Kunsthuis SYB, Tropical Greenhouse community in Beetsterzwaag and Catalina Suescún P.
