the perfumed garden︎


Performative Installation, Text

Video Excerpt with Text︎︎︎

Garten als Modell der Welt
gedacht um sie zu studieren
Ort der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten
oder aktuell noch kurios
Garten Eden
Eve and Eve
embodying all pleasure
and contrast to man’s worldly existence
nature imitates art
the artificial mimes the natural
memory responses
strolling from stage to stage
a dreamland

touch is an agreement
today touch becomes a rare commodity

two lovers
and many more
to lovers
and many more

t(w)o lovers
in between revolutions
secretly meeting in a garden
a counter public sphere
an act of defiance

two lovers
many more
and a green carnation

that longs to be picked
by a searching lovers hand
waiting to be seen
waiting to be chosen

police officer
uncounted police officers



two faced mirrors
cameras lurking behind reflections
separated stall
in its midst
a circular invitation
a conflict of interest
a morals emancipatory practice

familiar stranger
veiled thresholds
perfumed garden
only visible to those
who know how to decipher the signs

a garden
a park
a public restroom
a sauna
a molly house
a pull-in
a garage

a car
a tea room


a bush
a hedge
a tree

many trees

many more

a city
a suburb
a village
a house
a garden

a garden that claims to be natural
all natural
all authentic

a family

two lovers
many more
city councillors
urban planners
oh, Grüner Garten,
wirres Labyrinth,
knackendes Gehölz,
und eine Suche,
eine kollektive Suche
nach Antworten.

Oh, fluide Wesen,
feuchte Gebiete,
seufzende Geliebte,
und ein Versprechen,
ein kollektives Versprechen
für einander.

Lust Garten,
dumpfer Bass,
miteinander zu verschmelzen,
sich gegenseitig ab zu stossen,
ein kollektives Suchen
nach Antworten.

Burning fields.
