“Gardens are built by time – the forest goes on growing in secret,” says Åsa Elieson about her two-room space at this year’s degree exhibition.
You reach her garden through a portal in the membrane of the paper wall. Or via the three-plank high pine steps to the left of the installation.
The visitor’s movement through this ugly, jerry-built construction triggers the story, but only indicates the shadow of a crime. And there is probably no planning permission. Since certain dubious factors have also arisen – chiefly regarding the orderliness and behavior of the student in question – the general public are asked to observe a degree of caution when sweeping through these spaces and garden areas, falling of the calm.
