HD Video installation (12:00), 2020

90 year old woman Carmen Vellani has created a garden at a junction box between the road and the cycle way. Primroses, rosemary and mint bloom on two square meters between decorative stones, eggshells and wild herbs. After a stroke, the Brazilian-born gardener has also started painting. The junction box and a neighboring garbage container serve as her canvas.Every day Carmen Vellani looks after her little idyll – until she falls in the stairwell and has to go to hospital.
