Manifesta purposely strives to keep its distance from what are often seen as the dominant centres of artistic production, instead seeking fresh and fertile terrain for the mapping of a new cultural topography.

Installation at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen

French artist Didier Trenet created this installation in the patio of the museum. A decorative model garden was planted around a garden hose that had been carefully positioned in the space. Eventually, when the hose was taken away, an embroidery of grass beds reminiscent of French Baroque gardens appeared.
