The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw is pleased to announce a new lecture as part of the Bródno Sculpture Park Flying University. Szymon Maliborski will talk about Paweł Althamer’s "The Garden of Eden" (2009).
The Garden of Eden is a sculpture-garden, which was created in cooperation with residents of Bródno district, among others with children from the Elementary School No. 285. Author of the design is Paweł Althamer, who was thinking about creating the green paradise for his neighbors. Paradise corner at the Bródnowski Park, which was designed jointly with the landscape architect, was created with diverse tree and shrub species, the most often selected based on "special features" of the plants. Each year, there are more and more plants, and this green corner changes its shape.
The lecture will take place by the Tea House, the sculpture/venue by Thai artist Rirkrit Tiravanija.
